You can’t go wrong with Constantia Glen Five (2018). It epitomises why we started Wine Impala: world-class wine without breaking the bank. Ripe blackcurrant, juicy plums and fragrant dried herbs. Give it time to breathe and the wine unfurls into a multitude of layers; graphite, violet cassis and wild fynbos florae. A compellingly structured wine with excellent freshness and depth, it starts with a dramatic entry of concentrated dark fruit with delicious fine-grain tannins and incredible mouth-coating texture. The vibrant acidity offers freshness and a long lingering finish that will have you beckoning for another sip. Pairs well Asparagus and mushroom risotto with fresh pecorino. Pulled slow-roasted shoulder of lamb served with soy-glazed wild mushrooms and potato gratin. Beef rib-eye, grilled to medium-rare.
