Overview

The wine’s complex bouquet gains even more vibrancy once the lively citrus flavours encounter the palate’s rich, creamy texture and chalky minerality – the result of maturation on the lees in stainless steel tanks for 5 months prior to bottling. The excellent palate weight can be credited to a small portion of 2% Semillon, which was carefully blended into this year’s Sauvignon blanc to provide a full, firm backbone to the wine’s natural racy acidity, which cleanses the palate in preparation for the next sip. The 2017 Sauvignon blanc is a classic Constantia wine, exemplifying elegance and the kind of structure that allows for superlative ageing under ideal cellaring conditions.
