Cape Winemakers Guild

Groot Constantia Gouverneurs Auction Reserve 2017

The grapes were harvested at 25.5-26° Balling and fermented in stainless steel tanks. The wine matured for 14 months in 225 litre French oak barrels, of which 34% were new French oak, 28% second fill, 25% third fill and13% fourth fill barrels.

Tasting Notes: Layers of blackcurrant, black cherries and wood spice on the nose are supported by graphite and cigar box flavours. Cassis and cherries follow on the palate. Fine dry tannin promises good ageing potential.

Ready for drinking over the next 10 years.

Winemaker: Boela Gerber
