2020 Rose, Groot Constantia

Western Cape, South AfricaVintage: 2020

This delicate shell-pink coloured rosé shows wonderful complexity on the nose, with notes of strawberries, raspberries, melon and a hint of jasmine. The fruit flavours are echoed on the refreshing and beautifully balanced palate through to a clean, dry finish.

Groot Constantia is the oldest wine estate in South Africa and has a remarkable history including having King Louis Philippe of France as their best customer!   Today they make exceptional wines in a sub-region of the Western cape called Constantia which is near Cape Town.

Description

Groot Constantia is South Africa’s oldest estate and one of South Africa’s most visited tourist attractions. In 1685 Cape Governor Simon van der Stel built a farm in the foothills of Table Mountain, which he named Constantia. Groot Constantia received world acclaim from Napoleon, Bismarck and King Louis Philippe of France who was the biggest single buyer of Groot Constantia wines. They had to sell to the Cape government after phylloxera ravaged the vineyards. Now, the total estate covers 165 hectares of which 87 hectares are planted, at an altitude of 60 to 280 metres above sea level. The climate is generally cool resulting in complex and balanced wines.

The grapes were picked between 20 to 23 degrees Balling and were then coldfermented at 12 to 15°C in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks. Following the fermentation, the wine was left on the lees for six weeks, adding texture and complexity. It was then racked, fined and stabilised in preparation for bottling.
