The Sauvignon Blanc Constantia by Buitenverwachting delights the eye with a light lemon yellow colour.
In the nose, it delights with a radiant gooseberry fruit, complemented by aromas of black currants and freshly mowed grass with a slightly tart note.
On the palate it looks elegant, juicy and fruity, mineral, straight and enormously harmonious with a stimulating sweet and sour game and a great length. A delicate aftertaste completes this Sauvignon Blanc, which is one of the best in South Africa.
Serve with salads, grilled fish, white meat and goat's cheese.
The grapes come exclusively from Constantia. In the 17th century, the Dutchman Simon van Stel was the first to cultivate viticulture in South Africa
