Food Pairings for Klein Constantia Muscat Constantia Vin de Constance
Description Richly viscous in the glass, with a burnt orange-gold hue, this wine exhibits youthfully fresh, floral muscat aromas, and exotically spicy confectionary flavours on the unctuously textured palate. These rich flavours are well balanced by brisk acidity, and an attractive bitter orange twist on the clean, persistent finish. Grape Variety Muscat de Frontignan (muscat blanc á petits grains) Wine Record Grapes were left to raisin on the vines, and were hand-selected towards the middle of March of this warm vintage. Fermentation of the sticky, concentrated must took place in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks, followed by 18 months of maturation in French oak. The wine was released almost 5 years after harvest. Alcohol 14.1 % Residual Sugar 141g/l pH 3.75 Total Acid 7.1g/l Maturation Drink now or cellar long-term. The wine is bottled in asymmetrical 500 ml bottles, which are a reproduction of the hand-blown originals. Each is presented in a box, with a brochure containing the history of Constantia wine.
