Constantia Glen Sauvignon Blanc 2017

The wine’s complex bouquet gains even more vibrancy once the lively citrus flavours encounter the palate’s rich, creamy texture and chalky minerality - the result of maturation on the lees in stainless steel tanks for 5 months prior to bottling. The excellent palate weight can be credited to a small portion of 2% Semillon, which was carefully blended into this year's Sauvignon Blanc to provide a full, firm backbone to the wine's natural racy acidity, which cleanses the palate in preparation for the next sip.

Citrussy shrimp, mango and avocado ceviche tostadas. Crostini with poached figs and goats cheese. Chili salted squid with wasabi aioli.
