Klein Constania

Sauvignon Blanc 1999

Sauvignon Blanc 1999

Grown on the lower south-facing mountain slopes of Klein Constantia Estate, the Sauvignon Blanc vines enjoy cool breezes from both sides of the narrow Cape Peninsula, producing a wine of distinctive varietal character. 

The dry 1999 harvest provided favourable conditions for Sauvignon Blanc. After destalking and crushing, the grapes were given limited skin contact in rototanks. Fermented in stainless steel at 14º C and bottled in September. 

Tasting Notes

Intense gooseberry and fig nose followed by hints of capsicum. Fresh and crisp with a luscious tropical palate and a lingering classic finish.
