The 2016 harvest was early at Klein Constantia, yielding grapes with very ripe flavours, great acidity and pH balance - ideal for making Riesling. This vintage marks our fourth crop from this block of Riesling and we are beginning to understand the true potential of its terroir.
Description: Bright green gold in appearance. The nose bursts with peach and floral aromas and a fine minerality. Full bodied, the palate is fresh and aromatic with a firm acid backbone. Citrus flavours persist well into the finish and are supported by a broad, elegant mouthfeel.
Grape variety: 100 % Riesling
Wine record: The Riesling is made in a natural and minimalistic style. The grapes had long extended skin contact before pressing and were fermented naturally. The
wine underwent cold fermentation and was left on the lees for 6 months. No added enzymes were used in the making of this wine.
