Description

This wine comes from a small portion of our only East facing block, grown in decomposed granite and clay soil, producing a good balance between tropical fruit and greener, herbaceous flavours, while displaying the typical Constantia quality of freshness, purity, and minerality. The wine was aged in selected first and second fill 500 liter French Oak barrels, to add some mid palate to the wine.
Normally we blend Semillon in, but the Sauvignon Blanc really sang on its own this year.
