Klein Constantia Sauvignon Blanc 2011

Complex aromas of cape gooseberries and green figs. The palate is full bodied, well rounded and packed with flavour. Prominent mineral texture and a steely acid backbone are features of this vintage.

in the vineyard : Regarded by many as a difficult vintage due to the heat and water stress suffered late in the season. Fortunately our Sauvignons came in before any ill effects were suffered, and as a result offer classic, ripe Constantia flavours with typically fresh acidity.

about the harvest: The first Sauvignons came in very early- on the 27th January, and the last batch was processed on the 2nd March. The majority was harvested at the beginning of February, whilst the weather was still comparatively mild.
