Groot Constantia Sauvignon Blanc 2014

The 2014 Sauvignon has a pale straw colour with a lime green rim. On the nose it shows an abundance of ripe summer fruit like passion fruit, sweet melon and white peach mixed with herbaceous and green pepper aromas. The sweet summer fruit gives richness to the palate, beautifully balanced by a crisp, fresh acidity.

about the harvest:

in the cellar : After harvest, grapes go straight into the press and only the free run juice is used. The juice is settled until clear and cold fermented (12 – 14°C) in stainless steel to enhance the typical varietal characters.
