The Oddbins Take

The Western Cape is considered one of the jewels in the crown of the New World, a rising star of wine producing regions. Take Vin de Constance for example, this exemplary dessert wine has garnered the approbation of contemporary icons such as Alexandre Dumas and Jane Austin!

“Wait, they weren’t on Love Island, they we’re 19th century authors, I thought you said this was from the New World?” Well spotted, we like to consider South Africa a bit of a bridge between the new and old wine worlds; although there’s huge freedom for winemakers, the country also has nearly 500 years of experience behind the industry. Vin de Constance has actually been one of the world’s most revered sweet wines since 1685, such was its acclaim that Napoleon Bonaparte reportedly got through a bottle a day whilst in exile on Elba! Say what you like about Napoleon but that little guy knew his wine!
