TN : High Constantia Cabernet Franc 2001, Constantia Valley, South Africa

This wine was grown and bottled in the Constantia Valley.

High Constantia is being restored, under David van Niekerk and Bob de Villiers, to its former wine-making glory.

This wine was imported by Kvalitetsviner i Sverige.

The nose was really great on this wine but it was let down by the taste; the fruit seemed to be fading and it was well past its' best.

Colour : Black/brown/cassis

Taste : Floral, talcum powder, dark fruits, tangy

Alcohol : 13.5%

Price : 219 SEK

Mark : C
