Klein Constania

Sauvignon Blanc 2012

Sauvignon Blanc 2012

2012 provided ideal ripening conditions for our Estate Sauvignon Blanc. Cool evening temperatures resulted in the lower pH, tighter acidity and natural crisp minerality very typical of a top Klein Constantia Sauvignon Blanc wine.

Fresh and subtly aromatic, this wine exhibits the typical Sauvignon Blanc characteristics of gooseberry and citrusy lemon and lime on the nose. A hint of clove comes through and is underpinned by passionfruit and grapefruit aromas.

A Klein Constantia Sauvignon Blanc at its best.

Tasting Notes

Crisp minerality, fresh acidity and a well-integrated palate are complimented by flavours of papaya, sweet melon, lemon, lime and passion fruit. The finish is long and rich and almost increases with intensity towards the end.
