Red wines aren't the main focus at Klein Constantia, but Matt Day is doing an increasingly good job with this estate red made from a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon with 61% Malbec, Shiraz and Petit Verdot. Balanced, refined and graceful, with fine tannins and red berry and blackcurrant fruit.
Deep ruby red in appearance. The nose bursts with aromas of dark fruit and well integrated oak. These flavors follow through to a full bodied palate enhanced by well integrated bold tannins. The wine concludes with a savory and elegant finish.
Blend: 40% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Malbec, 19% Shiraz, 16% Petit Verdot
