Having only recently introduced new wine labels, please note that some of our wines still feature the old labels.

Red Horizon 2013

In the glass

Aromatic, light and elegant. With notes of plum, purple flowers and black cherry on the nose, a zesty acidity on the palate gives way to a hint of mint and eucalyptus. Beautifully layered, with no flavor playing an overly dominant role, this red Bordeaux is drinking excellently at present and will only get better over the next few years.

Blend composition: Cabernet Sauvignon 69%, Merlot 22%, Cabernet Franc 9%.

 

On the ground

Grapes are harvested in the cool of the morning and fermented on the skins. After pressing, the wine is racked to 225 litre French oak barrels of which 70% are new. The wine spends a total of 15 months in barrels.

 

In the news

Having just released this vintage, our previous year’s sold-out Red Horizon 2012 was awarded a prestigious gold at the Michelangelo International Wine & Spirits Awards. This vintage also received a respectable four-star rating by John Platter, and www.constantiawines.co.za had this to say about our Constantia Red: “An excellent example of new world wine with well integrated fruit and subtle lightly toasted wood flavours.”
