Constantia Uitsig Red Horizon 2013


Out of stock



Platter * * * * ½ – now cab-led blend with merlot, cab franc (69/22/9). Classic Bordeaux aromas but riper in style, with lithe tannin structure, 50% new oak melts into palate richness. Balanced & accessible, but no impediment to ageability.

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.

Cabernet Sauvignon 69%, Merlot 22%, Cabernet Franc 9%.
