4 /5

Bra att ta med grillspett från norr. Under en middag med ett annat par.
Denna röd är körsbärsfärgad, med bruna kanter. Aromer av hallon. Det smakade rökigt.

Comprei numa feira, no stand de Groot Constantia.
Cor viva e bonita. Aromas balsâmicos e mentolados. O Constantia Gosto de frutos do bosque.

- A powerful yet elegant Shiraz with flavours of black currant, plums and raspberries combined with white pepper, black pepper and clove spices.
- Well rounded tannins give an elegant long finish on the palate.
- This wine is ready for immediate consumption but has very good maturation potential.
