Description

Since Constantia is becoming more and more synonymous with the Bordeaux White blend, we thought we would introduce a reserve blend from 3 pockets of our farm.

44% of the blend is from West facing Sauvignon Blanc grown in rich soil, that produces lush, tropical fruit flavours, and was fermented in a steel tank.

44% of the blend is from  East facing Sauvignon Blanc, grown in decomposed granite and clay soil, producing high minerality and greener, herbaceous flavours, which was aged in an old barrel from Groot Constantia that had Muscadel in it.

12% of the blend is from West facing Semillon, grown in rich soil, that provides a roundness to the blend, and a slight earthy, nutty character, fermented in a steel tank

The blend was made in April, and matured in old barrels for 2 months.
