Less oaky than previous incarnations, or at least, less oaky than I recall from my hazy memories. Went beautifully with roast chicken and a Nicolas Cage movie.
It’s apt that on a day I feel out of my depth at work, I drink a wine that also makes me feel like I’m punching above my weight. It’s soft, delicate and far too sophisticated for my self-pitying, imposter syndrome-laden palette. Drank this with spicy mince stuffed peppers and a healthy side of self-doubt.
I got this bottle for completing a night time trail run around the Groot Constantia vineyards which effectively makes me a professional athlete. Tastes like victory might taste like. No idea what victory tastes like though. Never won a race in my life.
Soft tannins, smells amazing, tastes like raspberries, almost certainly over-priced. This was a gift so can’t vouch for the over priced part, but Groot Constantia are so ridiculous that they make you pre-book wine tasting tickets, so its fairly certain it is. Great wine, but you’ll find something similar for less without too much effort.
