The nose presents delicate aromas of white flowers, ripe citrus and touch of rosewater & almonds. Flavours of creamy stone fruit, litchi, citrus zest and a lively spice abound creating an ideal balance.

We finished with a welcome dessert wine in the shape of the 2017 Vin de Constance from Klein Constantia, which mirrored my recent tasting note. Just heavenly.

From a stellar vintage comes a rich and opulent wine, though one that is also remarkably precise in focus. Aromas of honeycomb, sweet roasted nuts, baked apple, orange marmalade and a touch of pressed honeysuckle set the stage on the nose and mouth, but are partnered for optimal balance by a pronounced seam of acidity and lingering ginger and baking spice accents on the long, evolving finish. It's hard to resist now, but this will hold and mature well through 2037.

This is luscious, but not tiring, with great purity and focus. The allure starts with the viscous texture, then the palate reveals layer upon layer of flavor, with notes of bergamot, honeydew melon, chrysanthemum, orange blossom honey and refreshing quince. Everything is supported by mouthwatering acidity, which makes this superlong on the finish. Impressive. Drink now through 2042. 15,000 cases made, 1,000 cases imported.
