Time 4 Wine @ Brooklyn Mall - Constantia Valley

Time 4 Wine was hosted by Weylandts Brooklyn Mall.

Constantia’s history dates back to 1685 when Governor Simon van der Stel named his property Constantia after the daughter of his benefactor Commissioner van Rheede who granted him a farm here. Governor van der Stel planted orchards and vineyards on the farm thus making Constantia the oldest wine producing region in the Southern Hemisphere with an uninterrupted history of wine making.

Situated 15 kilometres from Cape Town’s city centre, and with the world-renowned Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens on its doorstep, the Constantia of today shares its heritage and landscapes of unsurpassed beauty with the locals who have made it their home. The Constantia Valley receives a steady flow of visitors throughout the year who come to enjoy the country lifestyle conveniently located close to all major attractions.

1. Welcome drink: Steenberg MCC - Chardonnay

This wine is crisp on the palate with a lemon zest acidity and a toasted savoury complexity. This is a full flavoured MCC and is perfect for all occasions.

2. Klein Constantia Sauvignon Blanc

A delicate combination of elegant tropical fruit with a savoury minerality showcasing the Klein Constantia terroir, a common thread in our Sauvignon blancs. A fresh and expressive acidity with a full and lively palate.

Pairing: Savory Sweet Prawn

3. Buitenverwachting Blanc de Noir

The wonderful nose of fresh strawberries and peaches and cream follow onto the palate making this a very delicious and unique blend.

Pairing: Peaches & Speck with Orange Blossom

4. Groot Constantia Pinotage

Fresh fruits like juicy plums, cherries and black currant on the palate to finish with a soft spicy aftertaste. This Pinotage is very drinkable in its youth, but will age gracefully if stored correctly.

5. Eagles Nest Merlot 2011

Ripe dark berry fruit

Pairing: Spice Crusted Fillet, Coriander Potatoes with Roasted Tomatoes & Caramelized Paprika Butter.

6. Constantia Glen Five 2010 - Bordeaux blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Petit Verdot.

Dark fruit and cassis aromas
