Our intention for the Estate Red Blend 2017 was to produce a wine that represents our unique location. Over the years we have selected varietals that best suit our terroir, planting them on the lower and warmer slopes of Klein Constantia. Located in one of the coolest wine growing regions in South Africa, we are able to achieve ripeness in conjunction with delicate tannins, allowing us to create a more elegant and refined red wine.

Each parcel is carefully identified and blocks are split into multiple portions in order to harvest at the perfect ripeness.

The wine is then aged for 15 months before blending and bottling.

The grapes are then bunch and berry sorted to ensure that only the healthiest berries are selected. Malo-lactic fermentation takes place in 40 % new French oak barrels after alcoholic fermentation.
