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.
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 Bouard of Bordeaux.
There is no restaurant at Klein Constantia (no need with such a good one next door at Buitenverwachting) but there is a tasting room and gift shop - and it’s worth visiting just for its spectacular views.

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.
