    Goedhuis, February 2013

    Brilliant golden colour, this is a beautifully aromatic sweet wine with delightful flavours of caramelised oranges. Deliciously sweet without being excessive and a lovely long complex finish.

Producer

Klein Constantia

Vin de Constance is one of the world's greatest secret vinous treasures. For many years, it hadbeen sought after by kings, was the drink of preference for Napoleon (and was his last drink before he died on St. Helena), recommended by Jane Austen ‘to mend a broken heart' and was more in demandthan Yquem, Tokaji and Madeira. Yet phylloxera, the wine world's ‘black plague', came in the late19th century and struck down its prized vineyards like it did across the most exclusive addresses in Europe. Despite its long existence (since 1685), unlike Europe, its vineyards were not replanted until the 1980s. Several decades ago, new owners revived the original viticultural areas by planting only the best Muscat de Frontignan grapes (aka Muscat à Petits Grains, the original variety) to began remaking this unusual and inspirational wine. Their efforts have been a hands down success.

Region

Constantia

A small region just to the south of Cape Town, this region is home to the famous luscious dessert wines made from Muscat de Frontignan, the most famous of which is Vin de Constance from Klein Constantia. The cooling influence of the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans meeting at the Cape moderate temperatures, preserving freshness of fruit throughout ripening.
