Perdeblokke Sauvignon Blanc 2013

Perdeblokke Sauvignon Blanc 2013

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 you will find rich aromas of gooseberries and blueberries. The palate follows through with a range of characters; from concentrated tropical fruit to a spicy, flinty and greener style, flavours that truly express the unique Perdeblokke style. The wine follows through with a great acidity that helps to lengthen the full finish.
