Constantia Glen Winery Sauvignon Blanc 2022 75cl
This wine is bright with a light straw-like appearance highlighted by a light green hue. The subtle aromatics take a couple of swirls of the glass to peel away at the many underlying layers of this intricate wine. Initial aromas of lemongrass and lime lead to bolder aromas of the more tropical spectrum, such as gooseberry and white peach. This elegant wine will greet you 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 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.
Although winemaking on this winery began in 1685, recent history begins with the Waibel family who purchased the land in 1960. The picturesque wine estate is located below Constantian Nex, close to Cape Town city centre. This location is predominantly known for uts white wines, however, being situated between mountains, the right conditions are provided for red grapes to mature. The farm was originally used as a stud farm but in 2000 the Waibels planted grapes and now produce 4 wines. Despite the land here being difficult to farm, the dedication, patience and passion of the current family owners has proven rewarding.
