Aromas of tropical fruits like granadilla, pineapple, spanspek, ripe mango and pears are balanced by hints of white pepper and mineral flavours on the nose. The tropical fruit flavours follow through on the palate with hints of lemon on the aftertaste. A fruity wine in its youth that will show a lot of complexity with a bit of bottle aging.
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.
