Buitenverwachting Sauvignon Blanc Constantia Beyond 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

Wine Spectator Review Rated 89 Very racy, with lots of chalk, lemon zest and honeysuckle notes that ripple through a refreshing finish. Drink now. Wine Tasting Notes The wine has a pale lemon yellow color and a bouquet reminiscent of green figs with hints of gooseberries and an intrusion of green peppers. The wine is dry, full bodied and has a long lingering finish.

We won't even attempt to spell that 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 bottle age. From Constantia, a cooler-climate ward of the coastal region of South Africa.
