Constantia Glen Sauvignon Blanc 2020

Most of the grapes for the Constantia Glen Sauvignon Blanc are grown on the estate, together with a specially selected portion from another vineyard block within the region. The grapes are all handpicked, pressed and the clean juice is fermented in stainless-steel tanks before 5 months maturation on the lees. Initial aromas of lemongrass and lime lead through to bolder more concentrated aromas, such as gooseberry and white peach, then blackcurrant, citrus and elderflower. The concentrated aromatics carry effortlessly to the palate, where they integrate with a rich and textured mouthfeel. This wine is beautifully refined and elegant with a mineral edge and crisp acidity. The extended lees contact post fermentation gives this wine great weight and length. Made in a classic style, illustrating elegance, texture and freshness, this wine will benefit from a couple of years of careful ageing
