Sauvignon Blanc 361,372 2015

In our pursuit to express the true typicity of Sauvignon blanc from our unique Klein Constantia terroir, we have selected two premium single vineyards for their individual character that together form the perfect blend. Block 361, for its tropical and aromatic nose and Block 372 for its powerful palate weight and structure. These are some of the highest blocks on the farm, ranging from 260 - 300m above sea level.

Tasting Notes

A fresh and bright Sauvignon which exhibits intense aromas of citrus, fennel and spice on the nose. The palate is expressive and complex highlighting a sophisticated minerality and flintiness that is specific to the Klein Constantia terroir. Full bodied with a balanced acidity, the wine concludes with a long zesty finish.

Food Pairing

This wonderfully structured and acidic wine can be paired with several dishes, including the following: Sole Meuniere, soft cheeses, pasta salad with a citrus dressing, or a variety of grilled vegetables.
