Constantia Glen is responsible for wines of a consistently high quality. Their Five, the flagship of the winery, surpasses even the uppermost of expectations. It has a list of accolades to recommend it, including 4.5 stars from Platter's Wine Guide.
This Bordeaux-style blend is violet-edged with a dense crimson core. The nose expresses rich spice, cassis and black cherry aromas at first and continues to develop in the glass. These dark fruit aromas continue onto the palate where they are supported by a lovely texture, created by the lingering, soft tannins. Overall, the wine is rich and shows great concentration.
