Klein Constania

KC Shiraz 2005

KC Shiraz 2005

KC Shiraz is made in an approachable yet classical style. Careful fruit selection from vineyards close to False Bay, so benefiting from maritime influences results in a well structured, aromatic Shiraz.

Tasting Notes

Youthful, ruby red in appearance. Cracked black pepper and salami notes on the nose mingled with spicy cassia bark and oak aromas. The palate is full bodied, well rounded and releases wave after wave of ripe berry fruit with a creamy, persistent finish.

Maturation

Enjoy before 2010

Barrel Aging

Fermentation in rototanks, malolactic in stainless steel tanks with microoxygenation for 12 months before an additional 6 months maturation in 2nd and 3rd fill French oak barriques.
