Klein Constantia, Vin de Constance 2015

RRP £60

Shy nose; what were orange flowers on the 2012 (the wine that preceded this one in our line-up) have changed here to zest of orange and other candied peel. The mouthwatering acidity on the palate persists, with citrus-flavoured
caramel and fine contrast of salinity. It’s an extraordinary wine that takes over the entire sensory area, the palate, sinus, nose: it’s a wine you experience rather than merely taste. So accomplished.
