Klein Constania

KC Sauvignon Blanc 2009

KC Sauvignon Blanc 2009

Grapes were sourced from top quality vineyards in Elgin, Walker Bay, Somerset West and Constantia.  Given the warm, dry conditions leading up the harvest, the fruit quality was of the highest standard, and the resultant wine flavourful and full-bodied.

Purchased grapes were chilled overnight before careful processing in the cellar. Fermentations lasted up to 4 weeks, whereafter the wines remained on gross lees for 3 months before blending.

Tasting Notes

Fresh green appearance. Melon, green fig and kiwi fruit aromas abound. The complex palate is rich and juicy with a fresh, flinty finish.

Maturation

Enjoy before 2012
