About this Item

Red, 2006
12 (2 x 6) 750ml

Located just 7 kms away from the ocean in Stellenbosch’s prime Helderberg region is the sister estate of Klein Constantia, Anwilka. It was a collaboration between then Klein Constantia co-owner Lowell Jooste and Bordeaux wine personalities Hubert de Boüard (Chateau Angélus) and Bruno Prats (former owner of Chateau Cos d’Estournel).

Their debut release in 2005 was at the time the finest red wine that Robert Parker had ever tasted from South Africa.

Critics Ratings

Released young to catch Bordeaux ‘en primeur’ previews. 06 initially less settled than maiden 05, but layered sweet fruit, intensity & persistence all suggest potentially more complex & long-lived wine. 66/29 Cabernet Sauvignon/Shiraz, elegantly perfumed by dash merlot (5%); French oak, 50% new, 10 months.’ Platter’s SA Wine Guide 2008, 4.5*
