Dating back to 1685 and described as one of the world’s most beautiful wine estates, Klein Constantia is set amidst ancient trees on the upper foothills of the Constantiaberg, with views across False Bay. The perfect location for cool climate wines, Klein Constantia produces some of South Africa’s top wines, including one of the world’s best natural sweet wines, Vin de Constance.

Our unique terroir and cool climate consistently provides concentrated grapes full of flavour with a distinct freshness enabling us to produce a Chardonnay which is crisp with an enticing complexity.

In order to reflect the terroir, the Chardonnay was made naturally with minimal additives. Alcoholic fermentation and was followed by partial Malo-lactic fermentation in 500L neutral French oak barrels. After 9 months on the gross lees the wine was blended, settled and bottled after minimal filtration.

Food pairing

Excellent with rich flavoured fish dishes, bouillabaisse, scallops and calamari.
