Klein Constantia, Block 382, Sauvignon Blanc, Constantia, South Africa
Bright in appearance with fresh blackcurrant, fennel and flinty aromas on the nose. The palate is full bodied and precise, complimented by a fine acidity, the wine concludes with a long crisp white pepper finish.
One of the gems in the Klein Constantia portfolio, these three segmented parcels of the Block 382 are located on almost directly South facing slopes at 320 metres above sea level on grainy granitic soils. Block 382.1 is trellised and Block 382.2 and 382.3 are 100% bush vines. In some vintages, they only use the trellised vines and in others, like 2019, only the bush vines which were fermented and aged for 20 months in 500 litre barrels before bottling.
