New Release: One of the world's best sweet wines
02 September 2020

Klein Constantia’s emblematic Vin de Constance 2017 has been released. One of the most prestigious and widely admired sweet wines in the world, we recommend it as a wine of outstanding quality, complexity and refinement. Available at the same price as last year, the 2017 is a dessert sweet wine that can be enjoyed immediately or cellared for 20+ years, all for less than £240 per case.

Klein Constantia is an exceptionally beautiful estate with uniquely cool, high elevation vineyards posited in the foothills of Table Mountain, facing out to the Atlantic. The top wine, Vin de Constance, is produced from Muscat de Frontignon, which is harvested by hand in numerous passes at different levels of ripeness over a period of two months – a natural late harvest wine with no botrytis influence at all. For this reason, the wine retains a beautifully crisp, floral and lightly honeyed profile with crystalline fruit and great freshness. It is then aged for three years in 50% new oak and acacia barrels, as well as large format foudres, before further blending and bottling. Despite uneven budding in spring, the summer months in 2017 were near perfect for flowering and berry set. The exemplary growing season was characterised by cold nights, moderately warm days, cooling winds and just the right amount of rainfall to engender healthy berry development and a long maturation process.    Read More
