Buitenverwachting means ‘beyond expectation’ - and it is is a beautiful farm on the east-facing slopes of the magnificent Constantiaberg and barely 12km from False Bay. It originally formed part of the Constantia Estate, which was founded by Simon van der Stel, the first Governor of the new Dutch colony at the tip of Africa. Rooted in deep, decomposed granite soils and cooled by the temperate sea breezes from the surrounding oceans, Buitenverwachting wines are an expression of this unique climate. The slow ripening climatic conditions with cold nights and modest day time temperatures translate into fresh, crisp and full bodied wines.
This wine: part skin contact for 5 hours. Selection of five yeast strains. Fermented 12 to 16ºC for 21 days.
100% Sauvignon Blanc.
The wine has a pale lemon yellow colour and a bouquet reminiscent of green figs with hints of gooseberries and an intrusion of green peppers. The wine is dry, full bodied and has a long lingering finish.
