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.
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.
Pairs well with tarte tatin or creme brulee. You can pair it with cheese, berries and cookies, or just have it on its own.
