Klein Constantia: Vin de Constance tasting 1988-2008
Vin de Constance 2008
Plumper again, rounder, with some nicely bitter, black chocolate notes and flavours of mint, pears, marmalade, honey and sweet spices, very complex, with a tight, deep structure and that taut, tense acidity running through it, as ever. There’s such a strong family resemblance in these wines. Beautiful balance; perfect poise and elegance.
