2013 Vin de Constance Klein Constantia



We are delighted to offer the latest vintage of “a startling, world-class” sweet wine, the iconic 2013 Vin de Constance from Klein Constantia.

 

This South African Estate’s Vin de Constance is widely considered to be the pinnacle of New World sweet whites and, in the past, has been seen to rival that of the cream of Sauternes, with a balance and perfume that “gives Yquem a run for its money”. (Neal Martin, 2013)

 

The 2013 is no exception. Described by Tim Atkin as “lovely”, it is an excellent vintage that, while on the brink of its drinking window, also has the potential to age for at least another two decades. We tasted it ourselves last week and found it to be showing beautifully, signalling the latest success in a tremendous run of form for the great estate.

 

This is a delicious sweet wine that is a must-have for any collection, simultaneously representing the best of South African whites and a real must buy for all lovers of sweet wine. We are delighted to offer:

Matt Day’s second vintage in charge of this iconic sweet wine marks an evolution in style , with the addition of essencia and slightly less alcohol and residual sugar. It’s another lovely VdC, showing flavours of tarte tatin, orange marmalade, baking spices and subtle oak ageing.
