Klein Constantia: Vin de Constance tasting 1988-2008
Vin de Constance 1996
Younger, creamier and plumper, with fresh fruit. Slightly burnt, raisin notes, very vivid and bright, still with that steely acidity running right through the core of the wine. Mineral, sinewy structure, very elegant and fine. Enormous, bright finish.
