Notes

“Even better than the 2014 release – and that was a spectacular sweet wine – the 2015 Vin de Constance is one of the greatest ever vintages of this iconic sticky.” - Tim Atkin, 98 Points, September 2018

Notes
The 2015 Vin de Constance is limpid silver-gold in the glass. It has a bouquet of acacia honey, marmalade and pressed yellow flowers, plus a slight adhesive note in the background; I cannot recall a Vin de Constance with such intense aromatics. The palate is viscous on the entry, and a vital bead of acidity lends balance and freshness. This is an all-consuming, multidimensional wine with marmalade and dried quince notes mixed with Moroccan spices toward an unctuous finish that leaves your head spinning. Awesome - but it is not the most tensile Vin de Constance I have tasted.

With the young, affable Matt Day at the helm since 2012, quality at this historic estate has steadily improved, thanks to a revamp of the winery itself and tweaks in the winemaking process that have brought clarity and definition to the wines. In Matt’s words, “my aim is to make steady incremental improvements. I want us to compete with the best of the best.” Well, we think he’s achieved that and the critics have jumped on board too.
