"Honey, quince, a touch of rhubarb and ginger. Wonderful definition and purity. Awesome"
If you're after a dessert wine guaranteed to impress, we urge you to try Klein Constantia's Vin de Constance - the Cape's most-revered 'sticky'. During the 18th and 19th centuries, the sweet wine of Constantia was all the rage in the Royal Courts of Europe, favoured above Sauternes, Tokay and Madeira. It even features in the works of Dickens, Jane Austen and Baudelaire. Sadly, production ended after phylloxera devastated the estate towards the end of the 19th century, but now Klein Constantia has recreated this glorious wine, introducing it in 1986. The 2013 vintage boasts bright apricot and tangerine notes, laced with hints of quince and clementine. Pure, luscious and very long on the finish. Heaven with pineapple meringue or apricot pie.
