In the 18th and 19th centuries, the "sweet, luscious and excellent wines called Constantia, so highly esteemed in Europe" was the only wine in the Southern Hemisphere to achieve international acclaim.
Napoleon, King Louis Philippe of France, Charles Dickens and Frederick the Great all demanded it while Jane Austen even recommended it as a cure for a broken heart.
Now a century later after its disappearance, comes the renaissance - Vin de Constance - carefully made in the style from Vineyards that produce this legendary wine.
They continually strive to produce wines in more environmentally responsible ways, adopting as many organic and biodynamic practices as possible. Their 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. In recognition of their efforts to boost biodiversity, manage soil erosion, protect against fire, harness solar energy, reduce herbicide usage and embrace an integrated pest management program, Klein Constantia has been recognized as a WWF Conservation Champion since 2011.
Natural Sweet Wine
Aromas of citrus marmalade and frangipani abundant on the nose. Full bodied and complex, a good sugar to fruit ratio combined with a great acidity ensures the wine is in balance.
