Fodor's The Complete Guide to African Safaris
Klein Constantia Review
Klein (rhymes with "stain") means "small" in Afrikaans and indicates the relative size of this portion of Simon van der Stel's original 17th-century Constantia estate. The winery has an impressive modern cellar, and its Cape Dutch homestead, visible as you drive in, was built in the late 18th century. This estate produces wines of superb quality, as awards displayed in the tasting area attest. The excellent sauvignon blanc is used as a point of reference by many South African connoisseurs and vintners. The closest you'll come to the famous Constantia wine of the 18th century is the Vin de Constance, a sweet wine made from predominantly muscat de Frontignan grapes. The cabernet sauvignon is one of the best produced in the Cape—a collector's wine that will develop wonderfully over time.
