Groot Constantia is thought to be the oldest wine producing estate in South Africa, and dates back to 1685. The Gouverneurs Reserve is the flagship red wine of the estate and has won dozens of awards over the years. This 2017 vintage is a blend of 38% Cabernet Sauvignon, 32% Cabernet Franc, 24% Merlot and 6% Petit Verdot.
Blackcurrant, dark chocolate and graphite on the nose, while generous use of new oak adds cinnamon and cedar wood aromas to the nose. On the palate the wine shows beautiful intensity and the time in barrel adds a hint of vanilla to palate. Firm tannin promise good ageing potential.
