Buitenverwachting Sauvignon Blanc Constantia Cape Town South Africa

£12.00

Buitenverwachting Sauvignon Blanc, Constantia, Cape Town, South Africa

TASTING NOTE

Pale lemon yellow colour and a bouquet reminiscent of green figs with hints of gooseberries and an intrusion of green peppers. Dry, full bodied with a long lingering finish.  The southern vineyards of this wine estate are also the coldest of all. The Sauvignon Blancs produced here are extremely intense in flavour.

Producer

This beautiful farm on the east-facing slopes of the magnificent Constantiaberg and barely 12km from False Bay, originally formed part of the Constantia Estate, which was founded by Simon van der Stel, the first Governor of the new Dutch colony at the tip of Africa.

The South African wine industry has had many changes of fortune in the three centuries since, but this historic estate remains, divided now between five wineries. Buitenverwachting, meaning ‘beyond expectation’, belongs to the Mueller family, who have lovingly restored both its buildings and its reputation as a source of particularly elegant South African wine.
