Case of Constantia Glen Sauvignon Blanc
Intense varietal character is the cornerstone of our classically-styled Sauvignon blanc, combining tropical fruit flavours with a well-integrated minerality. A wine of freshness, impeccable balance and great length.
This wine is bright with a light straw-like appearance highlighted by a light green hue. Initial aromas of lemongrass and lime lead to bolder aromas of the more tropical spectrum, such as gooseberry and white peach. The nose exudes elegance with a final bouquet of blackcurrant, citrus, and elderflower, as you prepare to take your first sip. The concentrated aromatics carry effortlessly to the palate, where they integrate with a vibrant acidity and textured mouthfeel. The palate is beautifully refined and elegant with excellent fruit concentration and long-lasting freshness. The extended lees contact and small splash of 3% Sémillon gives this wine great texture and length. Made in a classic unwooded style, and in a vintage with incredible natural acidity, this wine is a pleasure to enjoy in its youth, yet it will benefit from 5 to 8 years of ageing under ideal cellaring conditions.
