34.50

Described as one of the world’s most beautiful vineyards, Klein Constantia is set amidst ancient trees and lush greenery on the upper foothills of the Constantiaberg, with superb views across the Constantia Valley and False Bay
Bright and rich in colour. The nose is abundant with
aromas of butterscotch, marzipan and dried apples. The
palate is fresh and vibrant with a good backbone of
acidity, balanced by creamy textures. Full bodied and
round, the wine concludes with a crisp and lingering
finish.

The grapes were whole bunch pressed with the must left on the grape lees at 6C for a period of 1 week before racking off for fermentation. 30% of the juice was fermented in new 500L barrels and the remainder in stainless steel tanks, it was then transferred to neutral 500L barrels. Malolactic fermentation was avoided in order to maintain the freshness of the wine. The wine was aged for 9 months before blending and bottling.
