Klein Constantia's most famous wine the 2006 Vin de Constance underwent several tries during picking in order to eliminate green fruit and the 2006 includes 10% raisined berries some as Aszu and 80% whole bunches. It has a heavenly bouquet with apricot blossom honeysuckle elderflower and pear drop that is mesmerizing. The palate is vibrant and animated with notes of raisin fresh fig and Seville orange marmalade. It has a life-enhancing silver thread of acidity and a long waxy honeyed finish that lacquers the mouth but is imbued with great freshness and vitality. It is easy to see why this elixir was so coveted 200 years ago. Drink now-2050+.

This is gorgeous from the start proffering sweet but precise tangerine nectarine and clementine fruit flavors laced with date orange blossom and green tea notes. Long and pure through the finish with a lingering echo of bitter orange. The track record for this wine keeps getting better. Drink now through 2020. 400 cases imported. -JM

Knockout nose offers orange apricot cherry raspberry mace nutmeg honey and flowers. Thick very sweet and hugely concentrated; like liquid velvet in the mouth but with outstanding energy to its palate-staining orange and apricot fruit. Utterly seamless wine with a palate-staining lightly saline aftertaste hinting at red berries.

Butterscotch honeyed almonds and candied ginger-orange peel lead the way on the nose of this late harvest Muscat. Rich overripe mango and honeydew add levity to the palate lifting the heady spice and viscous syrupy flavors. The long finish carries a tinge of pithiness adding some tongue-smacking texture to the close. Has aging potential though it's certainly also enjoyable now. - L.B.
