Grassy with a nice roasted jalapeno note on the nose. A real jalapeno treat. Bright and clear on entry though, with plenty of buffering fruit to give this a rather smooth, elegant texture, rather silky. The fruit is on the green end of the spectrum, limes and that great chili note and this helps to accentuate the acidity here. The finish is modest and much the same as the palate. This is a touch simple, but a thirst quencher. 87pts

This has rather deep roasted chili notes with a touch of cut grass over fresh pineapple and peach fruit. This is a bit simple in the mouth, though the acid is vibrant. The fruit is a touch towards the overripe tropical end of the spectrum with notes of papaya and mango on the palate, leading to a brisk, slightly short finish. 86pts

Incredibly delicious and refreshing wine. Not too hot at all, but you can still taste it, and it adds to the wine. Crisp, easy drinking. Hint of tart apples.

dry minerality to it, some nice grapefruit, and fresh squeezed citrus notes, simple and enjoyable

Sauvignon Blanc Constantia 2010 - Buitenverwachting : Sauvignon Blanc Constantia 2010 - Weißwein von Buitenverwachting Dieser Sauvignon Blanc ist sicherlich einer des Besten in Südafrika. Er begeistert durch seine feine Mineralität, Geradlinigkeit und zeigt sich sehr saftig, fruchtig und mit einem fein-würzigen Finale. Die Trauben für diesen Weißwein stammen ausschließlich aus Constantia. Hier kultivierte der Holländer Simon van Stel im 17. Jahrhundert als Erster den Weinbau in Südafrika.Der Sauvignon Blanc Constantia 2010 von Buitenverwachting  kann besonders zu Salaten, gegrilltem Fisch und weißem Fleisch empfohlen werden.Weingut: BuitenverwachtingLand: SüdafrikaRegion: ConstantiaRebsorte: Sauvignon BlancInhalt: 0,75 lAlkoholgehalt: 13,41 Vol.%Säuregehalt: 7,9 g/lRestsüße: 5,1 g/lEmpfohlene Serviertemperatur: 8-12 °CLagerfähigkeit: 2-4 Jahre ab Jahrgang Constantia

We won't even attempt to sound the name out phonetically, but we will tell you its translation: "beyond expectation." We found that very apt when we tried this wine. Made partly from vine plantings that are over 80 years old, with some younger ones mixed in as well, it has notes of crisp fresh flowers, peppers and minerals. Still fresh and young, this will evolve wonderfully with a bit of bottle age. From Constantia, a cooler-climate ward of the coastal region of South Africa.

Buiten Blanc 2010 - Buitenverwachting : Buiten Blanc 2010 - Weißwein von BuitenverwachtingIm Glas schimmert dieser Weißwein in einem zarten Gelb. Die Nase wird mit einem Bukett aus Pfirsich, Stachelbeeren und tropischen Früchten erfreut. Am Gaumen  finden sich die frischen Früchte wieder und verschmelzen wunderbar mit Melone und Pfeffer. Der Buiten Blanc 2010 von Buitenverwachting wirkt aber nicht überladen, sondern zeigt ein gutes Gleichgewicht von fruchtiger Fülle, Komplexität und Säure. Dieser Weißwein ist ein unkomplizierter Begleiter von nicht zu scharfen asiatischen Gerichten, Spargelrisotto und Fisch in hellen Saucen.Daten von Buiten Blanc 2010 - Weißwein von BuitenverwachtingWeingut: BuitenverwachtingLand: SüdafrikaRegion: ConstantiaRebsorte: 80% Sauvignon Blanc, 10% Chenin Blanc, 10% RieslingInhalt: 0,75 lAlkoholgehalt: 13,0 Vol.%Empfohlene Serviertemperatur: 10 °CLagerfähigkeit: 1-2 Jahre ab Jahrgang Constantia

Packed with zesty flavors of passion fruit, green pepper, kiwi and lime backed by pronounced herbal notes and a minerally tang, it displays an elegance typical of cool climate Sauvignon Blanc.

Winemaker's Notes:

This beautiful farm on the east-facing slopes of the magnificent Constantiaberg and barely 12km from False Bay, originally formed part of the Constantia Estate, which was founded by Simon van der Stel, the first Governor of the new Dutch colony at the tip of Africa. This attractive rosé wine is an attractive salmon pink colour. This blend of noble red varieties offers a combination of fresh strawberry characters with aromatic peach like flavours. Match this wine with sea food and any Mediterranean dishes.
