Perdeblokke Sauvignon Blanc 2018

Perdeblokke Sauvignon Blanc 2018

‘Perdeblokke’ refers to the horses that tilled the soils of the steep vineyard located 200-220 metres above sea level on the slopes of the Constantiaberg, afterwhich it was named.

Since it was planted, the ‘Perdeblokke’ has yielded grapes of the highest quality giving us a distinctly unique Sauvignon Blanc, which prompted the decision to produce the first vintage of this ‘single vineyard’ wine in 2005. It is only made in years of exceptional quality.

Tasting Notes

Straw-like in appearance with a light green hue. An intense nose bursting with aromas of blackcurrant, fig and flint. The palate is rich and fullbodied, yet precice and serious. A zesty mouthfeel with a crisp minerality that truly expresses the complex and energetic “Perdeblokke” terroir. The palate is complimented by a fine acidity, the wine concludes with a long saline finish.

Maturation

Drink now or enjoy for the next 5 years.
