Klein Constantia ‘Perdeblokke’ Sauvignon Blanc 2009

Sauvignon Blanc from South Africa
Review Date : 27-Sep-2016
Even straw-yellow colour. This has a firm and concentrated bouquet with an amalgam of green stonefruits with nutty and flinty layers and detail. The aromatics retain freshness with no obvious secondary bean-like development. Dry, soft and initially rather reserved on palate, the fruit is gently packed with ripe, green stonefruit flavours, tropical fruit and nutty nuances, the palate growing in breadth and richness, with soft acidity lending a degree of roundness. Some phenolic grip emerges and the wine leads to a stonefruit and herb-nuanced finish. This fresh in flavour, the mouthfeel is beginning to soften and become richer. Fruit fermented to 13.06% alc. and 3.4 g/L RS, the wine aged a year on lees in tank. 18.0/20 Sep 2016 RRP $N/A
