Perdeblokke Sauvignon Blanc 2011

Perdeblokke Sauvignon Blanc 2011

Klein Constantia Perdeblokke is a wine from a select group of vineyards high up on the steep slopes of the Constantiaberg. The name refers to the horses that tilled the soils of this vineyard whose steep slopes lie 200-220 metres above sea level.

Since its planting in 2000, the Perdeblokke has yielded the best quality sauvignon on the farm, which prompted the decision to produce a single vineyard wine. It is made only in years of exceptional quality in order to uphold the reputation of the Perdeblokke vineyard.

Tasting Notes

On the nose the Perdeblokke has very absorbing aromas of dried straw, marzipan and nectarines with a subtle hint of aniseed spice, followed by a palate that is rich in complexity with crisp minerality and sweet citrus fruit. Complimented by a fine acidity that helps to form the backbone of the wine, this 2011 vintage has a long and powerful finish that completes the flavour sensation.



Perdeblokke will definitely benefit from age but it is showing very well at the moment. Drink now or keep for up to 5 years.
