Klein Constantia, Vin de Constance 500ml 2009South Africa, Constantia
Golden orange in colour, with delicate aromas of nougat and honeycombe. The palate has a fresh acidity with rich flavours of Seville marmalade and dried apricots enveloping the mouth. These fruity notes are married with sandal wood and all spice flavours. Richly aromatic that tapers into a elegant and endless finish...
Alcohol: 14 % vol
Residual Sugar: 160 g/l
Total Acid: 7.8 g/l
Composition: 100% Muscat de Frontignan
The wine was aged in a combination of 60 % new French oak, Hungarian oak and French Acacia oak for a period of 4 years on the gross lees. No racking or movement of the wine occurs until the final blend has been made up.
The aromas offer intense perfume, hints of caramel and candy as well as typical lifted Muscat tones. The palate is well balanced with the oak notes still showing, but these should integrate beautifully in 6 months to a year. Unfortunately, in this pursuit of perfection 25% less was produced in 2009, and there will not be any 2010 for release. This is a real investment wine. - Wine Advocate
