Klein Constantia Sauvignon Blanc 2021
A great deal of attention has been placed on expressing the Klein Constantia style in this wine. It consists of a blend of various parcels from the estate, each kept separate throughout the winemaking process. Finally, they are carefully blended together to create a perfect representation of the unique Klein Constantia terroir.
Winemaking and Maturation
Sticking to the basics, we made a wine to truly respect and express the Klein Constantia terroir. Batches were hand sorted and the grapes were pressed gently, allowing optimal free-run juice to be used. It was 100% tank fermented and spent 7 months on the lees after which the various batches were blended together to create this elegant wine.
Bright and light in appearance, aromas of citrus and stonefruit fill the nose. The palate is richly textured, fresh and complex with a bold minerality – a pure expression of Sauvignon Blanc. The wine concludes with a long crisp flinty finish.
