Celebrate #GrootSummer with our new Groot Constantia Rosé
Longer days and shorter nights, balmy weather and a well-chilled glass of bubbly is what summer is all about. Sharing and creating those best moments of summer is what makes it even more memorable. This summer we’ve shared our hashtag: #GrootSummer and it was up to you to get in on the fun too and tag us in your #GrootSummer shots. We’ve seen some amazing shots with you enjoying and living your best #GrootSummer life at our estate and even those taken in the comfort of your own home and abroad. Here are a few of our favourite photos you have shared on our social media channels:

For some, summer means the introduction of berries and tropical fruit into the season.
And as the saying goes, wine counts as a serving of fruit, so it’s only fitting that we celebrate #GrootSummer in style with our new Groot Constantia Rosé. Consisting of 42% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot, 22% Semillon, 6% Sauvignon Blanc. Minimum contact with the grape skins ensures this Rosé has a delicate shell pink colour. The nose shows amazing complexity, with strawberries, raspberries, melon a hint of jasmine. The fruit flavours follow on the palate and the fresh acidity leaves a clean, dry finish. This makes our Rosé the perfect wine to pair for your Valentine’s day dinner for your loved one. Serve with light salads, light pasta and rice dishes, pairs especially well with seafood.
