Klein Constantia vin de Constance 2014
Klein Constantia once cultivated the legendary Constantia wine, which Napoleon, King Ludwig XIV, George IV and Chancellor Bismarck drank and stored in their private wine cellars. In the early 19th century, the Constance wine was bought by European judges and other rich men rather than Ch. Yquem, Tokay and Madeira. This is an incredibly distinguished wine from Constance, which over the last centuries has been considered one of the greatest wines in the world. It was reportedly Nelson Mandela's favorite wine. The wine lice, which came to Cape Province in the late 1800s, spread death and destruction, and thus the Constance wine disappeared from the market. Over a hundred years after the disappearance of the Constance wine, the rebirth - Vin de Constance - made just like the old Constantia came from the vineyard that once produced this legendary wine. That the wine is suitable for royal events was proven in 2015, when Queen Elizabeth of England served Vin de Constance 2008 for Chinese President Xi Jinping and his wife at an official state dinner at Buckingham Palace. Klein Constantia Vin de Constance is stored for up to 4 years in oak barrels - this year, 3 years in Hungarian and French oak barrels and 6 months in steel tanks. This dessert wine has a nice golden amber color and a floral, fresh bouquet of citrus. The taste is fruity and full-bodied with notes of spices and exotic fruits. The long aftertaste is clean and lasting. The wine is made from 100% Muscat de Frontignan grapes.
