South African white wine from Constantia South Africa, made with Sauvignon Blanc
Klein Constantia was once part of Constantia estate, created in 1685 by Van der Stels. He planted the first Muscat de Frontignan that gave birth to the famous sweet wine ‘Vin de Constance’. At the time the estate covered the whole valley but got divided though time. Klein was inherited in the early 19th century. After the phylloxera, the farm fell into decline until the 1970s when vines were replanted and later the iconic ‘Vin de Constance’ was revived. Since 2012 Klein Constantia has merged with Anwilka Vineyards and is under the ownership of Zdenek Bakala, Charles Harman, Bruno Prats and Hubert de Boüard, owner of Chateau Angelus. Today Klein Constantia’s premium estate range is led by a world acclaimed and highly popular Sauvignon Blanc that regularly garners awards and praise as one of South Africa’s best wines.
