Tasting Notes:

"Is there a glass ceiling when it comes to what a producer can charge for Sauvignon Blanc? Apparently not, if you’re Klein Constantia. A wonderfully complex nose of hay, dried herbs, peach, naartjie and white pepper. Good fruit concentration making for nicely coated acidity, the finish long and pithy. Delicious!" CE

Named after Clara Eliza Hussey, an American heiress from Pittsburgh who purchased Klein Constantia in 1913. She and her husband Braam de Villiers epitomised hospitality – their garden parties were legendary – and under their custodianship, Klein Constantia reached new heights as ‘an incomparable domain richly stored with memories of the past.

In our pursuit to express the true typicity of Sauvignon blanc from our terroir, we isolated 6 of our top performing vineyards and separated them into single blocks. Ranging from 260 - 300m above sea level, each block displays different traits.

During vinification, the blocks are kept separate allowing their unique characteristics to evolve. The top barrels are selected to make up the blend of the Clara Sauvignon Blanc. The wine was made naturally without the addition of any additives. Using only the free run juice, wild fermentation took place in 500L neutral oak barrels.

The wine was aged for 9 months in a combination of neutral French oak and acacia barrels.
