Constantia Glen FIVE 2013

The dense dark fruit flavours are fluently translated from the nose to the palate, where silky, polymerised tannins intersect a fresh mineralty, creating an outstanding mouthfeel with a well-rounded, textural finish that lingers well onto your next sip. This is a focussed and elegant blend with fine-grain tannins showing the coolness of the 2013 vintage in Constantia.

Crispy Peking duck pancakes with Hoisin sauce. Mushroom risotto with black pepper and sage. Moroccan lamb tagine with grilled aubergine and fresh coriander. BBQ Beef short ribs with classic coleslaw.
