Minimum contact with the grape skins ensures this Rosé has a delicate shell pink colour. The nose shows amazing complexity, with strawberries, raspberries, melon a hint of jasmine. The fruit flavours follow on the palate and the fresh acidity leaves a clean, dry finish.

Groot Constantia is South Africa's oldest estate and one of South Africa's most visited tourist attractions. In 1685 Cape Governor Simon van der Stel built a farm on Table Mountain, which he named Constantia. Groot Constantia received world acclaim from Napoleon, Bismarck and King Louis Philippe of France who was the biggest single buyer of Groot Constantia wines. They had to sell to the Cape government after phylloxera ravaged the vineyards. Now, the total estate covers 165 hectares of which 87 hectares are planted, at a height of 60 - 280 metres above sea level. The climate is generally cool resulting in complex and balanced wines.
