Klein Constantia Estate
Constantia, South Africa
Part of South Africa’s Constantia Wine Route, our farm is situated on the eastern slopes and foothills of Constantiaberg, with 90% of the property being South to East facing. The higher slopes are some of the colder slopes in the Cape, with fewer sunlight hours and lower temperatures being ideal for preserving the acidity and pH of white varieties, most especially Sauvignon Blanc. This cool climate also creates the ideal growing conditions for Muscat de Frontignan, used to make our natural sweet dessert wine, Vin de Constance. As the berries are able to ripen fully on the East to North facing slopes before raisining begins, they are able to produce raisined fruit of the very best concentration and flavour.
