More information about Metis Sauvignon Blanc - Klein Constantia

In the glass, the Metis Sauvignon Blanc from Klein Constantia offers a dense light yellow color. When swirling the wine glass, this white wine reveals a high density and fullness, which is evident in clear church windows at the edge of the glass. To the nose, this Klein Constantia white wine shows all sorts of kumquats, grapefruits, pomelo, lemons and limes. As if that wasn't already impressive, the stainless steel aging adds more aromas like forest floor and sun-warmed rock.

This South African wine delights with its elegantly dry flavor. It was bottled with only 2.1 grams of residual sugar. As you would expect from a wine in this price range, this South African naturally enchants with the finest balance despite all its dryness.  This crisp white wine presents itself on the palate with pressure and complexity. Due to its present fruit acidity, the Metis Sauvignon Blanc is wonderfully fresh and lively on the palate. In the finish, this well storable white wine from the Coastal winegrowing region finally inspires with considerable length. Once again, hints of orange and pink grapefruit show through.

Vinification of the Metis Klein Constantia Sauvignon Blanc

The basis for the powerful Metis Sauvignon Blanc from Coastal Region are grapes from the grape variety Sauvignon Blanc.

At the time of optimal ripeness, the grapes for Metis Sauvignon Blanc are harvested exclusively by hand without the help of coarse and less selective grape harvesters. After harvesting, the grapes are taken to the winery in the fastest possible way. Here they are selected and carefully crushed. Fermentation follows in stainless steel tanks at controlled temperatures. Fermentation is followed by aging on the fine lees for 12 months before the wine is finally bottled.

Food recommendation for the Metis Sauvignon Blanc from Klein Constantia

Enjoy this white wine from South Africa best moderately chilled at 11 - 13°C as an accompanying wine to stir-fried vegetables with fish, omelet with salmon and fennel or roasted trout with ginger pear.
