Groot Constantia Cabernet Sauvignon 1992

Cultivar wine. The typical character of this wine is enhanced by wood maturation in small French Oak barrels. It is a classic wine with a nutty character and perfect balance, promising superb bottle ageing for many years.

A well-matured wine, soft and well balanced with freshness, which attest to good natural acidity. A most typical Cabernet character, strongly perceptible on the nose but especially so on the taste, giving the wine a lengthy aftertaste.
