Vin de Constance, Klein Constantia (50 cl) - 2020

An impressive luminous gold colour, with orange highlights indicating extraordinary concentration. The initial nose is insanely intense and you literally throw yourself into it: citrus peel, kumquat, candied apricot, very noble nuances of pine resin, encaustic, beeswax; the complexity and aromatic power are insane. The attack is broad, creamy and powerful, with a crazy intensity: the concentration of the liqueur is matched only by the wine's acid structure. All this is supported by an ambitious and highly stylish ageing process, which sets the wine on course for very long cellaring. This vintage is a quintessential Klein Constantia, a wine that will defy time and gain in complexity for 50 years or more. Already legendary...

The wine was aged half in wood with a blend of new French oak, Hungarian oak and French acacia. This was for a period of 3 years, on coarse lees, before being racked and blended. It spent a further 6 months in tank before bottling.


With over 320 years of history, Constance wine is without doubt the greatest sweet wine of the southern hemisphere. It made the greatest dreamers, from Napoleon Bonaparte to Baudelaire, including Queen Marie-Antoinette, Louis XVI, Charles Dickens, Alexandre Dumas, George Washington, Nelson Mandela, etc. It has also been served at Buckingham Palace, in some of the world's greatest houses and at some of the most prestigious dinners in history. Produced near the city of Cape Town, it is named after the wife of Governor Simon Van der Stel, the founder of the estate and the inspiration behind the country's wine history. Today it is the pride of Czech businessman Zdenek Bakala and English banker Charles Harman, who bought it in 2011. Their partners include two figures from the wine world: Hubert de Boüard de Laforest (L'Angélus) and Bruno Prats (Chriseya). 

The vines of Muscat de Frontignan, the ultimate grape variety and master of Constance wine, are spread over 16.5 hectares on the slopes of the Constantiaberg mountain. The 600 million year old granite soil, with a high clay content, ensures good irrigation and water retention, and thus a good performance of the vines during hot and dry summers. Located between 35 and 400 m above sea level, the estate is caressed by a constant sea breeze. The vines benefit from a south-east orientation and an oceanic...
