sweet wine

Klein Constantia, Vin de Constance 1989

RRP £100

Luscious caramel nose, seared toffee; very sweet, with earthy notes. Palate very evolved, concentrated spice – more toffee and caramel, and a robust undertow of muscovado sugar. This is very evolved with tertiary flavours – notably a not-unpleasant note of burnt rubber and Riesling-like petrol – and fine, defined acidity. The finish is dry and could be juicier.
