Klein Constantia

One of the most beautiful and historic estates in the wine world, Klein Constantia, as its name suggests, lies in the picturesque region of Constantia on the peninsula south of nearby Cape Town.

Its legendary Vin de Constance, a natural sweet wine made from muscat de Frontignan grapes, was prized internationally as long ago as the 1800s and is now, along with sauvignon blanc, the main focus at the estate and in the young but accomplished hands of cellarmaster Matthew Day.

Vin de Constance now has its own vinification cellar, following major restoration and investment by the relatively new joint owners: Zdenek Bakala, Charles Harman, with Bruno Prats and Hubert de Boüard of Bordeaux.

The Klein Constantia team also make Anwilka, which has its own vineyards and cellar in Stellenbosch, and its own winemaker Jean du Plessis.

There is now a restaurant at Klein Constantia as well as a tasting room and gift shop - and it’s worth visiting for its spectacular views of this beautiful corner of the Cape.

A tribute to poise unusual in sweet wines. Its palate of ripe apricot, nectarine and crunchy cloudberry carries the sweetness expected and the wash of acidity that prepares the palate for more. This is a beautiful wine, though drinking it again in 10 or more years would be even more beautiful.
