Constantia Glen FIVE 2012

This wine’s incredible concentration of dark fruit flavours and complex spices follow effortlessly onto the palate, where polished, fine-grain tannins and an integrated minerality provide a rich, mouth-coating texture that beautifully balances this wine’s powerful weight. This poised and elegant Bordeaux-style blend with good structure and remarkable depth boasts a natural freshness that truly advocates the coolness of the 2012 vintage, and its wellrounded, textural finish will linger well onto your next sip.

Slow roasted, pulled pork tortillas with chipotle chillies, lime zest, fresh coriander and coleslaw. Roasted rack of lamb with a tomato and rosemary jus, served on a bed of Mediterranean couscous. Mushroom risotto with black pepper and sage.
