Klein Constantia under the new regime of MD Hans Astrom and winemaker Matt Day have impressed with their various versions of Sauvignon Blanc to date and the Estate 2014 Wine Cellar price: R110 a bottle) is no exception.
White peach through granadilla with subtle top notes of blossom and fynbos. Lovely fruit expression, good palate weight and tangy acidity. No shortage of freshness but nothing hard or angular about it – if anything, a bit fuller than the 2013. A really sophisticated offering belying the notion that this was a difficult vintage for Cape Sauvignon.
