Reviews of Klein Constantia Vin de Constance 50cl 2015
- The wine was aged in a combination of 60 % new French oak, Hungarian oak and French Acacia. It was left for a period of 3 years in barrel on the gross lees before racking out and blending. It spent a further 6 months in tank before bottling.
It would have been better with meat.
I'll try again at the upcoming wine tasting.
