Klein Constantia – Still Creating History

There is much cause for celebration this month, as Klein Constantia wins “Best South African Sparkling Wine” at the Champagne & Sparkling Wine World Championships 2017 with their 2013 Méthode Cap Classique Brut .

Tuesday 19th September also saw the launch of the 2014 Klein Constantia Vin de Constance, the latest scion of arguably South Africa’s most iconic wine. The launch took place at the Devonshire Club, London with Winemaker Matthew Day & Co-Owner Charles Harman taking the guests on a journey through the recent vintages of Vin de Constance. In addition guests were treated to a number of Sauvignon Blancs which ranged from 1987 up to 2016, surprising all in attendance with the amazing ageability of this other corner stone of Klein Constantia’s offerings.

With the preceding vintage, the 2013 Vin de Constance, collecting the Platinum & Best in Show for Sweet Wine at the Decanter World Wine Awards 2017 earlier this year and with the 2014 harvest being hailed as one of the best of the decade it is clear this will be a very special wine.

More good news came in the form of Tim Atkin’s South Africa Report 2017 with Klein Constantia retaining its First Growth status, the only producer from the Constantia Valley to do so. In addition to this honour a number of the Klein Constantia wines received some very impressive scores.

Klein Constantia also sponsors Velo Birmingham which takes place on Sunday 24th September in the heart of Birmingham. The event will see 15,000 cyclists line up to start an unforgettable 100 mile route, taking them through the picturesque Worcestershire and Staffordshire countryside before returning to Birmingham.
