Sauvignon Blanc 2017

Sauvignon Blanc 2017

A great deal of attention has been placed on expressing the Klein Constantia style in this wine. It consists of a blend of various parcels from the estate, each kept separate throughout the winemaking process. Finally, they are carefully blended together to create a perfect representation of the unique Klein Constantia terroir.

Sticking to the basics, we created a wine made to better express the vineyards and truly respect the Klein Constantia terroir. Batches were hand sorted and the grapes were pressed gently, allowing optimal free run juice to be used. It was 100% tank fermented and spent 7 months on the lees after which the various batches were blended together to create this elegant wine.

Tasting Notes

Bright in appearance with fresh flavours of grapefruit and gooseberry on the nose. A full bodied palate that is crisp and well rounded, a zesty acidity with a minerality specific to the Klein Constantia terroir. The wine concludes with long and refreshing finish.
