Groot Constantia is situated on the Cape Peninsula overlooking False Bay. The vineyards are tucked in the steep valley on the eastern side of Table Mountain. The area is blessed with a maritime climate due to the oceans on both sides combined with cool southern slopes and deep mountain soils provides the ideal setting for the making of top quality wines.
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.
Food suggestion: Fresh mussels with garlic butter, tuna carpaccio drizzled with virgin olive oil. Grilled calamari in a lime and ginger marinade.
