Wine Advocate 95 points - The 2008 Vin de Constance is the latest release from the estate. “We were happy with the 2008,” Matthew told me. “But it was tough to follow-up a great vintage. It spent a slightly shorter time in barrel and has 160g/L residual sugar with a pH of 3.6. It had the lowest volatile acidity in a Vin de Constance in a long time. To me the 2008 is more toward the older style of Vin de Constance.” It already offers a very complex bouquet with fresh pineapple, quince, Japanese yuzu, just a hint of grass clippings and then later mille fieulle. It is obviously tightly wound at the moment, but extremely well focused. The palate is medium-bodied with a fine viscous entry that immediately comes across as very elegant and refined. It feel smooth and pure - gentle in the mouth, caressing the senses with its quince and marmalade tinged finish with a suggestions of shaved ginger on the aftertaste. Returning after 40 minutes, the finish has mellowed and attained a beguiling effervescent quality, almost like an unctuous Lucozade! Wonderful.  (Oct 2013)

Wine Spectator 94 points - Gorgeous apricot, warmed peach, dried mango and maple notes lead the way in this unctuous dessert wine, with crystalized ginger, green tea and dried blood orange accents filling in through the finish. Has enough well-embedded acidity to carry it all easily, finishing with impressive range and cut. Drink now through 2030. From South Africa.óJ.M. (Jun 11 2014)

Producer
Klein Constantia is custodian to some of the most historic vineyards in South Africa and, indeed, the world. The unique location, climate and soils of our estate call for the making of terroir-driven wines, and it is to this principle that we are deeply committed. Simple winemaking techniques are used to extract the best from grapes grown in expertly nurtured vineyards in the aim of making consistently excellent wines. We strive to produce wines of high quality that express elements of elegance, minerality and balance. As a BWI champion (Biodiversity in Wine Initiative) our vision is aligned with that of the World Wildlife Fund as we aim to unite conservation and agricultural development in a complementary, mutually beneficial manner. We continually strive to produce wines in more environmentally responsible and biodynamic ways. Our wine range includes a top quality Estate range, a second label KC range, and our flagship revival of the famous Constantia sweet wine, Vin de Constance. We also produce limited volumes of Perdeblokke (a premium single vineyard Sauvignon Blanc), a Methode Cap Classique Brut, and a Chardonnay.
