Beau Constantia 'Aidan'

This blend of 49% Shiraz, 20% Petit Verdot, 18% Malbec and 13% Cabernet Sauvignon was carefully crafted from vineyards that produced perfectly ripe grapes on the sunny north-facing slopes of Beau Constantia. The grapes were hand harvested, gently destemmed and berry-sorted before being batch vinified in small fermentation vessels, where extraction during alcoholic fermentation was facilitated by means of temperate punch downs. A relatively short maceration of the grape skins (15 days) has led to a new-world style, ripe and fruit-forward red blend whilst retaining great complexity. The wine was matured in 225 litre French oak barrels (35% new, 35% second fill and 30% third fill) for 18 months before bottling.
