CONSTANTIA UITSIG EX OPPIDO RED TABLEAU
Constantia Uitsig is a stunning estate, thriving under owners devoted to sustainability and conservation. They are restoring their land to its indigenous state, where local 'fynbos' can grow uninhibited, a haven for flora and fauna alike. The 17 hectares of vineyards, planted on the Cape's characteristic decomposed granite and sandstone soils, are farmed organically, promoting biodiversity. Passionate about Constantia, Head Winemaker Daniel Keulder's aim is to create wines true to its unique terroir. Drawing on modern and traditional techniques, his wines are finely wrought, with the emphasis on freshness and purity of fruit.
Distinctive cabernet sauvignon aromas define the nose with notes of cassis and tobacco leaf, followed by hints of maraschino cherry from the merlot, which carry through onto the palate for a soft, round and juicy flavour.
