Klein Constantia Sauvignon Blanc 2005

Ripe but not overly tropical, and green without being vegetal the wine strikes a harmonious chord of balanced Sauvignon flavours. The palate is at once fleshy yet taut and the addition of 15% Semillon gives the wine an added dimension of weight and age worthiness.

in the vineyard : Sauvignon Blanc vines are grown on the lower, south-facing slopes of Klein Constantia Estate. Atlantic and Indian ocean breezes ensure a relatively long and cool growing season, resulting in wines of distinctive varietal character. Unirrigated soils comprise decomposed Table Mountain granite.

about the harvest: Harvested early in the season due to very favourable vintage conditions.

in the cellar : The wine was made with very little skin contact, cool fermentation in stainless steel tanks, and approximately 4 months of lees contact before preparation for bottling.
