2005 Klein Constantia Vin de Constance ($50, 500ml)

Price: $50, 500ml

Why: South Africa's great sweet Constantia wines deserve rediscovery. Made from late-harvested muscat grapes, this top vintage seduces with heady, honeysuckle aromas and apricot and candied orange peel flavors, laced with zingy acidity. No wonder 19th century vintages of these legendary stickies consoled Napoleon in exile.
