Klein Constantia, Vin de Constance 1999

RRP £100

Burnt toffee and caramel, citrus and saline notes, shot through with acidity and textured dryness, but the whole is seductive, luscious, piercingly acidic and perfumed. Alongside ripe apricot and nectarine there are hints of saline and ozone, potpourri and dried rose petals. At 20 years old, this wine has shed its youthful brio and is maturing into a beautiful early adulthood. Superb.
