Available for:
Category Dessert Wine
Origin South Africa, Western Cape
Brand Klein Constantia
Alcohol/vol 13.5%
Vibrant bright gold in appearance. A richly aromatic nose with flavours of Seville marmalade, quince, candied ginger & stone fruit. Inviting red apple and toffee aromas follow with a delicate floral perfume. Fresh and lively, the palate is full bodied and silky. Textured with intricate flavours following through from the nose. The wine has a refined sweetness balanced by an elegant salinity. A roasted walnut dryness compliments the fruit flavours creating a drier style of Vin de Constance. A powerful expression with a long zesty and complex finish.

The 2018 Vin de Constance was picked over 60 days, the second most prolonged picking since the maiden 1986 vintage. It was lightly pressed into 500-liter barrels for alcoholic fermentation, which can take up to six months, then matured on the gross lees in 60% new oak and acacia barrels. This vintage contains 172g/L residual sugar and 6.2g/L total acidity. It presents a vibrant, effervescent bouquet of freshly sliced grapefruit, fresh fig and citrus fruit, all penetrating, vivacious and tensile. The palate is beautifully balanced with a fine bead of acidity, impressive weight and notes of grapefruit and orange zest plus hints of stem ginger. The spiciness is accentuated toward the finish.
