2020, Constantia Glen, Sauvignon Blanc, Constantia Wine Valley, 6x75cl *
Sauvignon Blanc 100%
FOOD MATCHING NOTE:
Chilli salted squid with wasabi aioli. A cucumber dill yoghurt salad. Thai green curry with coconut milk and fresh green coriander. Crostini with poached figs and goats cheese. Glazed tuna with citrus and coriander.
A clear, bright white wine hinting towards a light, lively straw to lime green colour.
At first glance the nose meets daring aromas of passion fruit, peach and grapefruit, which unfurl into the most delicate array of spices with a single swirl of the glass. Here the tropical facade so slightly fades to expose underlying hints of fennel seed, white pepper and cardamom, neatly strung together by an uplifting, yet delicate perfume of mandarin. The wine’s complex bouquet gains even more vibrancy once the citrus flavours encounter the palate’s rich, creamy texture.
