Klein Constantia, Vin de Constance 2004

RRP £129

Acacia, preserved pineapple and honeysuckle on the nose, then on the palate there’s a dryness: after a rich note of mango, the perfume is potpourri, the flavours baked, caramelised apple and raisin. The length is so subtle as to almost disappear, but it lingers, carried through on a wave of acidity that opens the palate and never lets up. Extremely fine.
