Klein Constantia Vin de Constance 2016

500 mL bottle  |   VINTAGES#:  5033

Increasingly celebrated as one of the great sweet wines of the world, not just the Cape, Vin de Constance is a delight to taste and review. Slightly drier than the 205 release at 165 grams of sugar, it has more in common with the Loire or Tokaji than it does with Sauternes in terms of freshness and structure. Fresh, balanced and floral, with incredible delicacy, racy acidity, fine oak and flavours of pear tart, crystallised lemons and orange zest. Drink date: 2019-2035. Ranked as Tim Atkin's Overall Sweet Wine of the Year. Score - 98. (Tim Atkin, MW, timatkin.com, South Africa Special Report 2019)
