Constantia Royale Dons Reserve 2021
Picked from our top portion of grapes on the farm, and meticulously paired with the right French oak barrels, this wine shows pure Sauvignon Blanc elegance, while maintaining maximum drinking pleasure. The barrel gives an aromatic component, and rounds the wine off, while still respecting the inherent flavours of elderflower and white peach.
|Tim Atkin 2023 Report - 93 points
|This wine comes from a small portion of our only East facing block, grown in decomposed granite and clay soil, producing a good balance between tropical fruit and greener, herbaceous flavours, while displaying the typical Constantia quality of freshness, purity, and minerality.The wine was aged in selected first and second fill500 liter French Oak barrels, to add some mid palate to the wine.
Normally we blend Semillon in, but the Sauvignon Blanc really sang on its own this year.
|100% Sauvignon Blanc
