Klein Constantia, Vin de Constance 500ml 2008South Africa, Constantia
After handpicking selected shriveled grapes, the berries are left to macerate on their skins for several days to soften, which facilitates the recovery of their golden juice with pressing. Vin de Constance 2008 was aged in a combination of 500L French and Hungarian oak barrels for 4.5 years, of which 60% were new barrels and was blended with the aid of new Klein Constantia shareholders and Bordeaux wine experts, Hubert de Boüard and Bruno Prats.
A rich, darker golden honey colour with intense perfumed nose of complex spice, cloves and vanilla. Developed secondary flavours of orange marmalade and dark chocolate. An intriguing and ever-evolving wine. The bold, sweet palate is perfectly balanced by tight acidity which results in a long-lingering honeyed finish.
Alc: 14% RS: 1.5 g/L TA: 8.0 g/L pH: 3.6
