Wine Advocate contributor Neal Martin has published a list of his most memorable wines of 2012. It’s perhaps no surprise that his vinous highlights include the likes of Bordeaux legend Chateau Lafleur 1950 and Spain’s Vega Sicilia Unico 1962. More notable, however, are the South African wines that are in their company. Klein Constantia’s Vin de Constance 2007 is Martin’s sweet wine of the year, whilst Alheit Vineyards Cartology 2011 is his best value white.

Cartology is certainly making its mark both locally and internationally. The 2011 was awarded 5 stars from Platter and has already sold out.

Klein Constantia Vin de Constance 2007 is available on request. Contact roland@winecellar.co.za to order.
