A very late vintage, similar to 2004 but with riper fruit.

Due to a very windy spring and dry but cool summer (one of the windiest on record in the Cape) the berries tended to be smaller and more concentrated than usual, with resultant lower yields.

Rich straw in colour with a green-tinged edge. Aromas of green figs, white peach and tropical fruit precede rich pineapple and grapefruit flavours and a long minerally finish. Well balanced and ripe this is a seriously-styled Sauvignon Blanc.

Harvested over a period of one month between mid February and March 2006, the wine was fermented in stainless steel tanks and lees matured for a minimum of 3 months before bottling.white wine

"Klein Constantia doesn't only make great sweet wines, it also makes fine whites and reds. This sauvignon is grassy and herbaceous on the nose with compact, neat fruit on the palate. With a dash of Semillon, it's halfway between the Loire and New Zealand in style and would make a first rate aperitif or partner to seafood." Johnny Ray The Telegraph 25 October 2008.
