Klein Constania

Sauvignon Blanc 2013

Sauvignon Blanc 2013

2013 was a very interesting year for Sauvignon blanc at Klein Constantia.

A different ripening season led to higher degrees of phonological ripeness of the Sauvignon blanc at a much later stage than previous years, creating a wine that expresses a great amount of tropical fruit aromas.

Tasting Notes

Crisp green notes on the nose are complimented by delectable tropical flavours of sweet melon, gooseberries and Kiwi fruit. Fresh acidity on the palate, together with great fruit intensity and classic Constantia minerality create a bold wine that is made to be enjoyed with food.

Maturation

Drink now or allow to develop until 2016.
