2019 Vin de Constance, Klein Constantia

The 2019 Vin de Constance is disarming in its beauty. Notes of honeysuckle and pear swirl from the glass, with hints of spice and plenty of Seville oranges, too. The palate is so impeccably balanced, you barely feel the sweetness. And there’s such precision of flavour here, too, with so much unfurling in the mouth. This is an extraordinary wine: a bottling that belongs in every cellar.

Tasting notes

Bright, medium to deep gold hue, showing focused and pure aromas of honeysuckle, fresh vanilla, lemon tart, dried mango, ginger and a hint of saffron. Certainly quite sweet, but not unctuous, with the natural, effortless acidity managing to balance the lushness. Intense, yet scented and naturally expressive. Persistent finish. You crave for a second glass if you drink it now, but you can also hold it for a decade in your cellar.
