Klein Constania

Sauvignon Blanc 2000

Sauvignon Blanc 2000

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. 

This vintage was one of the driest vintages to date. Harvest commenced 2nd week of February. 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

Elegant wine filled with luscious ripe fruit. Complex palate of tropical fruit, intense gooseberry and hints of fig. Full bodied with a long crisp finish.
