Product Notes

Constantia Glen Three is an elegant, Bordeaux-style red blend that hails from South Africa's oldest wine-producing region. This distinctive wine is a fusion of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Cabernet Franc revealing robust complexity. Offering a rich, full-bodied palate with tantalising flavours of blackberry, dark chocolate and subtle spice notes, it has a fine balance of tannin and acidity. There's a delightful depth in the dark, ruby-hued liquid, not forbidding but alluring. Its lingering finish, paired with the aroma of earthy undertones and hints of mocha, gives an essence of sophistication. Perfectly suited to red meat dishes or aged cheese.

Tasting Notes

Youthful in colour with a dark, deep red core unwinding into a bright and lively garnet rim. Forthcoming nose with expressive red and black fruit flavours. Beyond these initial ripe fruit flavours, there is complex collection of savoury dried-herb flavours intermingled with lingering notes of white pepper, blackcurrant and cedar. The dark fruit and distinct savoury notes on the nose follow effortlessly onto that first sip where elegant, velvety tannins grip the palate in a vibrant intensity of flavour. This incredible richness and concentration of fine-grain tannins is further echoed by an earthy minerality and the wine’s inherent freshness brings about a long, well-defined finish. This opulent, full-bodied wine possesses old world authenticity with its delicate herbal fynbos notes that reign in the powerful fruit flavours.
