As many of you will know, South Africa is a place I hold so dear to my heart 💚 and where I spent 2 months this year gaining experience in the cellar at@grootconstantia.
Groot Constantia is South Africa’s 🇿🇦 oldest wine estate and steeped in history, producing wine since 1685. 😱
It’s situated, as it’s name, in Constantia which is a suburb of Cape Town. Historically it is most famous for its sweet wine, Grand Constance, which was drunk by emperors, kings and written about in English novels such as Sense and Sensibility. 📚
It felt like the right time to crack open this Chardonnay as showcasing South African wines is more important than ever.
This wonderful wine has tons of flavour and complexity, oaky, buttery and hints of orange blossom as well. Absolutely love it.
🍇 Grapes: Chardonnay
🌍 Region: Constantia, South Africa
