A complex and structured palate full of rich red fruit characters reminiscent of ripe cherry and blackcurrant with dark chocolate and tobacco undertones. Delicate tannins and velvety fruit notes on the finish.

The Constantia wine region between the Indian and Atlantic Oceans is one of the oldest in South Africa. Wine from the then Dutch colony was highly traded in Europe. But owners of the dreamlike property came and went - the winery was neglected, the fame was lost. in 1980, the German couple Müller took heart and restored the winery as well as the gleaming white mansion - with a small interlude of marauding baboons, which in the 1990s gleefully consumed over half of the vines and devastated the well. Today, the estate once more glistens under palm trees. The gourmet wines are considered excellent, and the view over the Constantia Valley is gorgeous. Buitenverwachting is considered locally as a pioneer of numerous social projects for their employees and sustainable and organic cultivation for nature. Buitenverwachting's own little world south of Cape Town has a lot to offer, especially a multi-layered terroir for first-class wine.
