  • Groot Constantia Shiraz Gold Selection

    Groot Constantia Shiraz Gold Selection

    This is a selection of wine honouring the Shiraz varietal and its success at Groot Constantia Wine Estate, South Africa’s oldest wine producing farm with a record of continued wine production since 1685. Groot Constantia has a long history with Shiraz.

    There are references pointing to Shiraz in Constantia as early as 1724; official records showing Shiraz plantings dating back to 1899, as Groot Constantia’s vineyards were replanted after phylloxera. Shiraz, also known as Syrah, is a very versatile grape variety. It can adapt in a wide range of climatical conditions, showing a more spicy, peppery, elegant side of the variety in the cool growing conditions of Constantia.

    For this Gold selection the following wines of even vintages were selected with their respected awards listed.. All three wines have achieved a Gold medal at the prestigious Syrah-du-Monde Wine Show in France, making this collection very unique and rare.
