Cap Classique Brut Klein Constantia 2017
I have been selling this fantastic fizz for years, and everyone loves it. Made from 100% Chardonnay grapes, using the Méthode Traditionelle (ie second fermentation in the bottle, like Champagne). It has aromas and flavours of citrus, stone fruit and citrus blossom, with a hint of brioche with with a crisp flinty finish. With 4 years bottle age, this is a fabulous example of a fine sparkling wine, at a great price.
Perfect with smoked salmon, or Petit Langres cheese.
In 2017 I led tours to South Africa, and we visited Klein Constantia, one of the original wine estates of Constantia and still the only maker of Vin de Constance, the famous sweet wine drunk by Tsars, Napoleon and even mentioned by Dickens! We met winemaker Matthew, and after picking our way through a maze of scaffolding (a new tasting room was under construction) we arrived in the Vin de Constance cellar, overlooking the winery, and tasted their entire range.
