Boutique Wines of Constantia, Cape Town - Est. 1890
The first wine in the Cape of Good Hope was made in 1695 from wines planted at the base of Table Mountain. Half a century later, sweet wines from Constantia became highly sought after by the aristocracy & royal courts throughout Europe.Today, the tradition of making exceptional natural sweet wine in the Contantia Valley continues.
St Leger Wines “Le Marais Natural Sweet” is crafted from hand-picked, vine desiccated Muscat Blanc grapes grown on the Le Marais vineyard in the Constantia Valley, Cape Town. This rare wine is aged for several years in French oak before blending and bottling.Pure aromas of jasmine, lavender & tangerine, with the intense sweetness finely balanced by excellent acidity.
Less than 600 bottles are produced each year from vineyards where wild lavendar and jasmine are purposefully grown amongst the vines, to reduce yield even further & to enhance the floral complexity of the wine.Our mission is to create & release only iconic wines, worthy of it’s Constantia heritage.
Created to be treasured, the hand-blown crystal bottle reflects the floral designs of an exceptional wine that will evolve beautifully for many years to come.
