Buitenverwachting Sauvignon Blanc Constantia Beyond 2011
A wonderful Sauvignon Blanc from one of the pioneer producers of this varietal in South Africa. A great value: gooseberry, lime and citrus fruit explode from the glass with luscious mouthfeel and refreshing grapefruit finish. Buitenverwachting is one of South Africa's premier estates and whose name means "beyond expectation" in Dutch.
Editorial Reviews for Buitenverwachting Sauvignon Blanc Constantia Beyond
Lightly aromatic on the nose with a nice white pepper tone over gentle fruit. Very crisp and focused in the mouth, delivering gently sweet citrus and lightly peachy fruit. This has real pop on the palate with good clarity to the fruit. Not fancy, this is a fresh, crisp and nicely balanced wine that finishes with a touch of stony minerality and nice, mouthwatering acidity. 87pts
