Description: In our pursuit to express the true typicity of Sauvignon blanc from our terroir, we isolated 6 of our top performing vineyards and separated them into single blocks. Ranging from 260 - 300m above sea level, each block displays different traits. During vinification, the blocks are kept separate allowing their unique characteristics to evolve. Each barrel is evaluated individually and only the best are selected to make up the blend of the Clara Sauvignon Blanc. Named after Clara Eliza Hussey, an American heiress from Pittsburgh who purchased Klein Constantia in 1913. She and her husband Braam de Villiers epitomised hospitality – their garden parties were legendary – and under their custodianship, Klein Constantia reached new heights as ‘an incomparable domain richly stored with memories of the past. Description A bright and light Sauvignon Blanc in appearance. The nose is perfumed & floral - displaying aromas of oak spice, vanilla, gooseberries, green fig and orange zest. A lively and expressive palate follows with ripe citrus and blackcurrant flavours. Rich and textured. An elegant and zesty acidity aids in a fresh long saline finish.
