From these Elysian fields used to come one of the very greatest wines in the world – the legendary Constantia,” writes Hugh Johnson, “Constantia was bought by European courts in the 18th and 19th Centuries in preference to Yquem, Tokay, Madeira…”.

 

100% Muscat de Frontignan.

 

A rich, dark golden honey colour with intense perfumed nose of complex spice, cloves and vanilla. Developed secondary flavours of orange marmalade and dark chocolate. An intriguing and ever-evolving wine. The bold, sweet palate is perfectly balanced by tight acidity which results in a long-lingering honeyed finish.

 

The wine has the potential to age for 20 years +.
