Dessert wines were first made on the Constantia Estate in the late 1660s and were celebrated in the literature of Austen, Dickens and Baudelaire. Produced in the oldest winemaking area in the Western Cape from hand harvested, shrivelled grapes. Released after four years. Fresh, floral muscat aromas with a hint of spice,and a rich, opulent palate of stone-fruits, nuts, vanilla, wood spices and honey. Well balanced by crisp acidity with a long, succulent finish. This wine can age for up to twenty years, but if you can’t resist it the wine is eminently drinkable now with tarte tatin or brûlée.
