The smallest of the seven farms that form the part of South Africa’s very first vineyard. Constantia Uitsig is located in what can be described as the “Cradle of winemaking” in the Cape and has a long history, being part of the first wine producing estate in South Africa, dating back to the mid-1600s. Constantia Uitsig means “Constantia View” and is named this for its unique position in the valley, nestled between the east-facing slopes of Constantiaberg and False Bay, creating endless stretches of beautiful vineyards and mountains that surround the farm. In decline in the 1970’s Constantia Uitsig was purchased by David and Marlene McCay in 1988 who restored the property and re-initiated wine farming with 40 hectares under vine.
Sauvignon Blanc, Constantia Uitsig
A lean and mineral driven wine with herbaceous aromas such as green apple and lime coming through on the palate with hints of gooseberry and guava. Backed up with a good acid that gives the wine its structure and length.
