Platter Review: 4 * (93 Points)
The nose of this 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon shows layers of ripe black fruit like plums and black cherries, with a hint of dark chocolate and Cape fynbos. The careful use of French oak adds a touch of vanilla and cinnamon to the wine. The ripe black fruit and oak flavours follows on the palate, while firm tannins promise good ageing potential.
Thin slices of rare roast sirloin in a red wine sauce or a beef espetada.
Groot Constantia is South Africa's oldest estate and one of South Africa's most visited tourist attractions. In 1685 Cape Governor Simon van der Stel built a farm on Table Mountain, which he named Constantia. Groot Constantia received world acclaim from Napoleon, Bismarck and King Louis Philippe of France who was the biggest single buyer of Groot Constantia wines. They had to sell to the Cape government after phylloxera ravaged the vineyards. Now, the total estate covers 165 hectares of which 87 hectares are planted, at a height of 60 - 280 metres above sea level. The climate is generally cool resulting in complex and balanced wines.
