'Gouverneurs Reserve', Constantia, Groot Constantia

Ripe rich flavours of blackcurrant with hints of chocolate mint and green pepper enveloped in a restrained elegant style. Very fine Bordeaux blend from this historic estate in South Africa.
The selected grapes were harvested once they had reached the desired maturity levels and were picked at 24 to 25å¡ Balling. The grapes were treated delicately in the cellar and during the first half of fermentation the wine was pumped over four times per day, in order to oxygenate the wine. Post- fermentation extended maceration lasted approximately four weeks. The wine was matured for 14 months in 225 litre French oak barrels, of which 73% were new, 9% second fill, 18% third fill.

Three words to describe this wine:
