Healthy, deep garnet colour.

On the nose is initial spicy - wood scents give way to ripe plummy, Christmas pud' aromas, and hints of cool grown Cabernet.

The palate is well structured, but medium bodied. Mouth watering flavours of ripe, juicy red currants and fleshy plums. Wonderful array of classic, cooler Cabernet attributes complimented by velvety Merlot flavours.

Judicious oaking has lent an added dimension of savoury flavours to this balanced, moreish morsel.

With the correct storage, this wine will continue to mature and evolve for a further 8-10 years.

Forward thinking has taken form in a second tier of reds, blended with Helderberg fruit and bottled under the label KC.

'This allows us to elevate the quality and status of our premium red wines, reserving the very best parcels of vineyard for the Marlbrook and Klein Constantia Cabernet Sauvignon ranges,' explains Adam (Klein Constantia's winemaker (since the 2004 vintage) is 29-year-old Adam Mason).

Cabernet Sauvignon 65%, Merlot 30%, Malbec 5%.
