Keep it really local with Groot Constantia Rood, a delicious red blend of largely Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Shiraz and a dash of our very own Pinotage. This is a medium-bodied wine with red fruit aromas of cherries, raspberries and strawberries which follow onto the palate with hints of chocolate and spice and well-rounded tannins to finish.
Perfect with steaks, chops and even with a classic sosatie or marinated chicken. Groot Constantia Rood is available at select grocers and wine retailers in Cape Town and surrounds for approximately R110 per bottle. Or visit this beautiful heritage site in Constantia and taste their range of wines whilst you’re there.
