Groot Constantia Blanc de Noir 2004

Sold Out
Attractive shell-pink blend, made from Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. The specially selected grapes were picked early March and cold fermented to ensure a crisp, fresh finish. Delicious flavours of red cherries and strawberries with a balanced sweetness and a lively acidity. A great suggestion for al fresco dining to be served well chilled.
