Winemakers Note

Vin de Constance, a MUST HAVE in any winelover's cellar Dating back to 1685 and described as one of the world’s most beautiful wine estates, Klein Constantia is set amidst ancient trees on the upper foothills of the Constantiaberg, with views across False Bay. The 146-hectare estate originally formed part of Constantia, the vast property established by the first governor of the Cape, Simon van der Stel, who chose the valley not only for its beauty, but also for its decomposed granite soils on slopes gently cooled by ocean breezes. 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. This wine has always been popular among the greatest writers and politicians. Vin de Constance elixir is placed in its iconic bottle with its unique and particular form redesigned by an Italian designer to look alike the original bottle while adding it a touch of modernity. The 2020 vintage Weather conditions The 2020 vintage was exceptional due to favourable conditions throughout the build up to harvest. Low rainfall and wind proved a challenge during the growing season, resulting in smaller concentrated berries and a lighter crop. Summer temperatures were unusually moderate for March with cooler weather throughout. Tasting notes 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.
