The Producer

Constantia Glen

Constantia Glen

Constantia Glen is the newest of the eight wineries which have established themselves in the enclave of Constantia wine region of South Africa, close to Stellenbosch. A landscape with a rich viticultural history it is widely regarded as one of the country’s finest natural areas in which to produce premium wine.

Although the region is more commonly known for its white varietals Constantia Glen’s unique position, laying between a gap in the mountains, allows red grapes to mature perfectly here as they bask in an additional one and a half hours’ sunlight every day. As such, Constantia Glen has made a name for its elegant, complex and beautifully-balanced Bordeaux blends which show exceptional value for money.

The red wines are based on Bordeaux blends (the 'Three' using Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Merlot, and the 'Five' with the addition of Malbec and Petit Verdot).

The refreshing, satisfying white wine is made predominantly with Sauvignon Blanc,(as one of the most aromatically pure examples in the country), with a touch of Semillon to enhance its many layers.

Other Varieties

There are over 200 different grape varieties used in modern wine making (from a total of over 1000). Most lesser known blends and varieties are traditional to specific parts of the world.

The Region

Constantia

The historically important if tiny wine district of Constantia lies in Cape Town’s southern wards, and on the most southerly point of Africa, the Cape of Good Hope.

Constantia is most famous for its ancient dessert wine Vin de Constance (made from Muscat de Frontignan)  as produced by Klein Constantia estate.

The cooling, south-easterly sea breezes make Constantia a natural site for Sauvignon Blanc, Semillon as well as Muscat.

The district is home to a mere 8 wine estates, including Klein Constantia, Groot Constantia, Buitervenwachting, Constantia Uitsig, Eagles' Nest, Steenberg, Constantia Glen
