Klein Constantia, Vin de Constance 2008

RRP £80

Shy nose and, for the first time, a note of lavender, which is seductive alongside the clove and orange oil aromas. Very fine, sweet perfume of orange flower on the attack. Powerful, concentrated, regular acidity. All this lush sweetness is controlled and underpinned by a dry texture from beginning to end – a dryness mitigated by a fine flow of juice.
