Constantia Glen Sauvignon Blanc


x1 - £15.95 - per bottle
x6 - £13.50 - per bottle
x12 - £13.17 - per bottle



Intense varietal character is the cornerstone of this classically-styled Sauvignon blanc, combining tropical fruit flavours with a well-integrated minerality. A wine of freshness, impeccable balance and great length. An intriguing complex core, with a lingering mist of lemongrass and lime, reluctant to leave the glass. It takes a couple of swirls for these concentrated volatiles to blow off, but as they do, we begin to peel away at the many underlying layers of this mysterious offering. Bold aromas of the more tropical spectrum, such as grapefruit and white peach, fill the next impression, but it is with patience that we are awarded the finer delicacies that have become synonymous with our fruit. This elegant wine will greet you with a final bouquet of blackcurrant, star anise and elderflower, as you prepare to take your first sip.

Pairs well with Ahi tuna poke bowl with fresh lime, avocado and edamame beans. Crostini with poached figs and goats’ cheese. Vietnamese Bún chà. Poached scallops with a wasabi lime granita.

Vineyard & Wine Region Information

Constantia Glen has a unique position cradled between the Constantiaberg and Table Mountain (World Heritage Site) ranges, with predominantly north-east facing slopes. This singular location allows for exposure to late afternoon sun, ideal for the slow ripening that shapes our classically expressed wines. Decomposed granite and Table Mountain sandstone are the dominant soil types that lend minerality and the graceful character to our wines. High water retention of the rich clay sub-soils allows for sustainable dryland cultivation, while ecologically sound practices include biological insect and pest control by means of natural predators.
