Region: Constantia

Tasting notes

Sauvignon Blanc and Sémillon.

Uplifting aromas of nectarine, orange and elderberry with undertones of the oak flavours imparted during barrel fermentation. Tropical papaya and green melon flavours also come through and this complex array of aromas offers magnificent ethereal notes in the wine’s youth, but these will integrate beautifully with time and create a refined and intricate wine.

The wine is fresh and lively with remarkable fruit concentration. It has a rich and textured mouthfeel that develops during the maturation of the wine on lees in large 600 litre barrels for 6 months. It is sumptuous whilst retaining great elegance and finesse due to a poised acidity and well-defined minerality. The Sémillon (30%) contributes to the weighty texture and mouth coating richness of the wine and also furthers ageing capacity. This is a classic Constantia style wine that is fresh and vibrant and has the underpinnings to age and develop admirably for 7 to 10 years from harvest.

Food pairing

Best enjoyed with seafood, for example glazed tuna with lime and coriander.
