Constantia and the Western Cape of South Africa have a close historical association with wine production, with grapes being planted in the valley as early as 1685. Glen Alpine is in the heart of Constantia, and extensive soil and microclimate studies revealed exceptional parcels of terroir here, suitable for the production of fine wines

TASTING NOTES: Youthful in color with a dark, cardinal core unwinding into a bright and lively ruby rim. The 2013 Constantia Glen THREE bids an utterly complex collection of savoury flavors with some dark fruit and truffle that consume the senses at first glance. This focused vintage promises old world authenticity with its floral herb aromas of rosemary and fynbos along with an intriguing lace of cassis, currant and the most elegant of spices. The savory flavors illustrated on the nose follow flawlessly onto that first sip, where elegant, velvety tannins grip the palate in a vibrant intensity of flavour. This incredible richness and concentration of fine grain tannin is further echoed by an earthy minerality and the wine’???s fresh, natural acidity that brings about a long, well-defined finish. This full bodied blend has great potential to well withstand the test of time and remain true to its terroir for at least another decade if stored under correct cellar conditions.
