Number One Constitution Road Shiraz

Constitution Road Range

In 2004 Robertson Winery released a very special Shiraz to commemorate ten years of democracy in South Africa under the new constitution. The wine has a radiant deep purple colour. Rich aromas of plum, and black berries envelopes warm spice aromas and a hint of dark chocolate. A voluptuous wine with silky tannins. Ripe dark fruit found on the nose follows through to the palate and lingers on the finish. This opulent wine is vibrant and deeply satisfying. Pair it with a joyous gathering of family and friends as you celebrate abundance.
