Klein Constantia Metis Sauvignon Blanc 2017


Metis Sauvignon Blanc was inspired by Pascal Jolivet and
his holistic approach to winemaking in Sancerre. Using a
unique and minimalistic approach to winemaking, we are
able to make a wine that shows the true expression of the
Constantia terroir. The name Metis refers to the
collaboration between the two producers to craft this great
wine. This fusion of philosophies is reflected in the flower
on the label that is a hybrid of the South African Protea and
French Iris.
Light and vibrant in appearance. Fresh citrus and nettle
aromas fill the nose. The palate is concentrated and full
bodied with a rich peppery and mineral mouthfeel.
Refreshing and supported by a balanced acidity, the wine
concludes with a powerful and flinty finish.
