GP Life: Tasting Time

The wines below are all available via GROOT CONSTANTIA, SEMILLON/SAUVIGNON BLANC 2004, £7.30.

Delicious ripe tropical fruit, peaches, a dash of green pepper and a hint of lime make up the complex bouquet of this serious wine. It has a firm richness and acidity that adds to an extended length and dry finish.

A delightful wine from one of South Africa's oldest wine estates.


A refined and elegantly structured Merlot with layers of rich, supple berry fruit flavours, hints of mocha and Belgian chocolates complemented by fine tannins. Twelve months of oak ageing and just a hint of Cabernet combine to provide a more deeply intricate wine. A wine that has justifiably won many awards.


A rarity, similar to Tawny Port, using Pinotage grapes left on the vine for longer than usual means the grape sugars are intensified, resulting after fortification in a luscious sweet wine. A complex nose of plums and caramel leads to a wonderfully rich, smooth, velvety texture. Delicious chilled or at room temperature.
