Tasting Notes

Not just your typical gooseberry aromas you might expect, this is fresh and piercing, bursting with freshly cut tropical fruit, balanced with a lovely herbaceous character – slight hints of green make it so very morish and true to the Constantia terroir. On the palate it has an excellent texture but is not cloying at all, going on and on, keeping you interested and refreshed. As winemaker Brad said on the vintage "it's not just a big nose with an insipid palate. It's got a beautiful lingering finish." 

More Info

This is great value compared with NZ Sauvignons, which are around £18 for this kind of quality. It is sensational Sauvignon for this price, and reminds me of the buzz I got from Steenberg Reserve when it was on song, when we used to ship it 16 years ago. We loved our visit to Buitenverwachting, set in Constantia’s oldest and most prized vineyard, as much for the people as for its wines and beautiful setting. The ever-genial host and owner, Lars Maack, is always smiling. He is joined by Brad Paton, who is one of the most lovely and talented winemakers around, and the equally delightful, and wise-headed, Herman Kirschbaum, the previous cellar master who now oversees the vineyards.
