Sauvignon Blanc Estate, Klein Constantia

£15.50

Our Sauvignon Blanc is quintessential Klein Constantia – it is the pure expression of our terroir. In the 40 years since planting the first Sauvignon Blanc at Klein Constantia, we have had the opportunity to gain a deep understanding of our site and how to achieve vine balance. The Sauvignon Blanc vineyards range from an altitude of 70m up to 340m, are east to south facing and consist of Table Mountain sandstone and decomposed granite. The wine is made up of 52 passes through 42 different parcels. Selected batches are combined to create the perfect blend that is Klein Constantia Sauvignon Blanc.

Bright and light in appearance. The nose abounds with aromas of lemon, white peach and nectarine, a wet stone minerality follows. A broad spectrum of intense flavours from tropical fruit to herbal notes with a bold minerality. The palate is textured and distinct with a well balanced acidity. An elevated expression of Sauvignon Blanc. Fresh and lively, the wine concludes with a punctuated and long crisp finish.
