Klein Constania

KC Sauvignon Blanc 2013

KC Sauvignon Blanc 2013

Racy acidity complements good balance between a tropical and slightly greener style, with flavours of sweet melon, fig and gooseberries on the palate.

Regarded as one of the best vintages of the last few years, 2013 delivered in terms of production and quality. The majority of the fruit for the KC Sauvignon Blanc label came from Klein Constantia itself which is evident in the style of this vintage. Adding complexity to the wine is fruit sourced from three wine growing regions: Elgin, Stellenbosch and Durbanville. The end result is a great expression of a cool climate wine that is also light and easy-drinking.

Tasting Notes

Light green in appearance, the inclusion of Semillon adds some extra weight and complexity while the Sauvignon blanc adds balance to create a light, crisp and fresh easy-drinking wine.

Maturation

Will improve in the bottle for up to three years from vintage
