If you don’t already know, the verdant Constantia valley is the oldest vineyard region in the Cape, first producing wine in 1689. It is in this valley that the well-known Klein Constantia Estate is situated, producing top-quality wines for a number of decades. The family run business is based on a philosophy of quality rather than quantity, which is so well reflected in the quality of wines produced. The Klein Constantia Estate produces an array of premium wines, ranging from Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon, Riesling, and small quantities of Semillon, Pinot Noir and Shiraz.
The Klein Constantia Wine boasts an excellent Pinot Noir wine, produced toward the top of the farm overlooking False Bay. This decidedly maritime position makes for a fresh, vibrant interpretation of Pinot Noir. Recognized by its dark cherry red appearance, with fragrances of fennel and liquorice offering a delicious, wholesome red whine – perfect for all occasions! The Klein Constantia Pinot Noir is no longer in production, perhaps offering a greater reason for you to get your hands on it? So the next time you’re entertaining guests or enjoying a romantic dinner in a cozy restaurant, be sure to ask for a bottle of the Klein Constantia wine on offer, the combination of meticulous preparation and rewarding taste will certainly make for an excellent choice!
