Wine EnthusiastThe 2016 vintage was exceptionally hot and dry but this apparently played in Constantia Glen’s favour – less vegetative growth in the vineyard and smaller berries with more concentrated flavour. Including 5% unwooded Semillon, the nose displays subtle notes of white flowers, fynbos, fresh herbs, talcum powder, pear and white peach. The palate has a pleasant austerity about it – pure fruit and bright acidity before a bone-dry finish. Very classy.
Wine SpectatorA piercing talc hint leads the way, followed by racy gooseberry, jicama and lemon zest notes. The long, taut finish has lovely tension, with a light whiff of shortbread at the very end. Drink now for the rapier feel, or cellar if you want the shortbread element to develop. Drink now through 2019. 670 cases imported.
