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. Made from a single vineyard on the lower slopes of Klein Constantia.

Malolactic fermentation was avoided in order to maintain the freshness of the wine. The wine was aged for 9 months before blending and bottling.

The grapes were whole bunch pressed with the must left on the grape lees at 6C for a period of 1 week before racking off for fermentation. 30% of the juice was fermented in new 500L barrels and the remainder in stainless steel tanks, it was then transferred to neutral 500L barrels.

Food pairing

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