Klein Constantia Vin De Constance 2018 (6x50cl)

Only available VAT & Duty Paid
With a history dating back to 1685, South Africa's Klein Constantia doesn't just produce some of South Africa's greatest wines but creates one of the world's greatest and most iconic sweet wines, Vin de Constance.

Following devastation of the vineyards by Phylloxera at the end of the 19th Century, the wine was revived by Klein Constantia in 1986, and has quickly reaffirmed its place back among the world's greatest sweet wines.

Scoring a massive 19.5++/20 from Matthew Jukes and 98 points from James Suckling. With "otherworldly characteristics", Jukes "cannot remember a young vintage tasting so refined and demure". While the "extraordinary aromas" (JS) might draw you in, it the palate that is really beguiling. "Super-smooth" and "unnervingly gentle" (MJ), the impeccable balance between the incredibly sweet dried apricot and tangerine notes and the citrus freshness keep it so "energetic and vivid" (JS). Possessing the "longest finish" that Jukes can remember experiencing, it goes on for minutes and minutes.

Although it is a sweet wine you can drink young to "marvel over the intensity and verve" (JS), this 2018 has a very long life ahead, with a drinking window up to 2070. This Vin De Constance 2018 will "blow your mind" (MJ) and considering it costs just a fraction of the price Château d'Yquem and Royal Tokaji's Essencia, the value for money is also out of this world.
