Klein Constantia Vin de Constance 1991
By Christian Eedes, 17 June 2014
Part of a wine legitimately taking on icon status is that it should impress most times it is drunk and the Vin de Constance 1991 from Klein Constantia didn’t disappoint yesterday. Deep brown in colour, it nevertheless had fantastic aromatics and flavour – dried flowers, mint humbug, caramel, mushroom, a certain loaminess. Intricate and wonderfully balanced – nothing obvious or aggressive about it. A special treat.
