WADE BALES CONSTANTIA WHITE 2018
R113 per glass / R450 per bottle
This is the first release in the pioneering Wade Bales Regional Series. The Constantia White is blended from the best selection of Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon. This wine embodies the signature regional style of Constantia, one of the oldest wine appellations in the world.
This is the outcome of a collaborative project combining the talents of the winemakers from seven of Constantia’s top wine farms:
Brad Paton (Buitenverwachting), Justin Van Wyk (Constantia Glen), Jacques du Plessis (Constantia Uitsig), Boela Gerber (Groot Constantia), Matthew Day (Klein Constantia), Gregory Brink Louw (Silvermist) and JD Pretorius (Steenberg).
The Constantia White 2018 is a classic blend of Sauvignon Blanc (67%) and Semillon (33%). It shows fresh aromas of passionfruit, nettle and lime, following through on the palate with luscious flavours of citrus and winter melon from the Sauvignon Blanc component. An undertone of sweet spice is derived from the Semillon barrel-fermented in French oak which adds complexity to this Constantia wine of origin
