Klein Constantia Vin de Constance 2015 50cl
Delicious and complex with a wonderful array of aromas. An absolutely superb sweet wine - much sort after by the great and the good for centuries
Constantia is set amidst ancient trees on the upper foothills of the Constantiaberg, with views across False Bay. The perfect location for cool climate wines, Klein Constantia produces some of South Africa’s top wines, including one of the world’s best natural sweet wines, Vin de Constance. Kings vied for possession of this wine; Louis Philippe sent emissaries from France to fetch it; Napoleon drank it on the island of St Helena to find solace in his lonely exile; Frederick the Great and Bismarck ordered it; and the English Prime Minister – who had sampled it with much delight at Downing Street – made sure that regular consignments from the Cape were delivered to Buckingham Palace for the King.
Rich, sweet and exquisitely luscious. Exotic fruits and a hint of nuttiness on the nose with dried fruits and marzipan on the palate. A long finish, perfectly balanced with a good level of acidity.
