Top scores for Constantia Glen wines in the USA

Constantia Glen has stood up to critical acclaim from two highly respected wine commentators in the USA with a slew of 90+ ratings for all four of their signature Bordeaux-style wines.

Three Constantia Glen wines broke the venerable 90 point barrier in reviews by Neal Martin in Robert Parker’s esteemed Wine Advocate, while two wines were rated 91/100 by James Molesworth of Wine Spectator.

The top scoring Constantia Glen wines in Martin’s South Africa Report published in the April 2017 edition of Wine Advocate, are Constantia Glen TWO 2015 with 92 points, Constantia Glen THREE 2014 with 91 points and Constantia Glen FIVE 2012 with a score of 90.

Martin describes the Constantia Glen TWO, a classic Constantia blend of Sauvignon Blanc and Sémillon as “a complex TWO and a delicious one”. He was equally complimentary about Constantia Glen THREE, the three-way blend of Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon, describing it as “beautifully made by winemaker Justin van Wyk”. The flagship Constantia Glen FIVE is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot, Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Malbec.

Constantia Glen’s two flagship white wines hit the spot for Molesworth who gave both the Contantia Glen Sauvignon Blanc 2016 and the Constantia Glen TWO a score of 91 points.
“The long, taut finish has lovely tension, with a light whiff of shortbread at the very end” is how Molesworth describes the Sauvignon Blanc. The TWO impressed him with its “lovely range and contrast”.
