Groot Constantia Sauvignon Blanc 2020 (Sauvignon Blanc)
- Appearance: Pale straw colour with a lime green rim.
- Nose: Great complexity on the nose, dominated by ripe fruit like white peach, passion fruit and guava with a distinct grassy, herbal undertone and a hint of lemon.
- Mouth: The palate has intensity and length, balanced by fresh natural acidity.
VINEYARD: Groot Constantia
GRAPES: 93% Sauvignon blanc, 7% Semillon
AGEING: After fermentation, the wine is left on the lees for six months before being racked, refined and stabilized in preparation for bottling.
PREPARATION: Grapes are hand-picked early in the morning to retain freshness and fruit flavours. They are crushed and destemmed into the press giving the juice some skin contact before being separated. Only the free-run juice is used. The juice is settled and cold fermented in stainless steel tanks to enhance the varietal characters.
PAIRING: Oysters with Aioli or Ravioli with Green Pea Pesto makes for a good pairing with this wine
