Klein Constantia Vin de Constance 50cl 2018

13% abv

Vol- 50cl

Burnished copper in colour, with abundant aromas of of dried mangos, apricots and honey. The palate is unctiously full bodied and intensely flavoured, with a thick, viscous consistency pared by pithy astringency and a fresh, mouthwatering finish..

“While similar in color to the 2017, the 2018 Vin de Constance Natural Sweet Wine possesses a richer, rounder frame than the previous vintage. Devastatingly gorgeous on the nose, the wine exudes ripeness, precision and focus, somersaulting out of the glass with gorgeous aromas of apricot purée, white nectarine and yellow peach with heady floral aromas. Compact, medium to full-bodied and unctuous on the palate, the wine explodes, showcasing the greatness of Muscat. The wine continues to unfold in the mouth, expressing additional layers and complexity it sits on the palate. It’s wonderfully textured, and I find myself almost chewing the wine, as there is so much going on with it. Drawing in air over the palate, I continue to slurp the wine and it continues to offer up more of its secrets and complexity. No spitting today. The wine glides to a persistent and world-class finish that has me smitten with this vintage. Do not pass up the opportunity to try this wine.” 2022 – 2065
96 Points, Anthony Mueller, The Wine Advocate, Jun 2022

Muscat de Frontignan grapes are hand harvested, and after crushing and destemming are left to macerate on their skins for several days. This process aids the eventual pressing of the grapes as they yield their meagre juice more easily when the skins are softer. Fermentation in stainless steel tanks is followed by a lengthy cellar maturation process that can take up to four years, and involves up to two years barrel maturation – 50% new French oak barrels, a small number of acacia barrels & some large foudres.
