2016 Metis Sauvignon Blanc, Klein Constantia, 6x750ml
Inspired by the time Matt Day has spent with Pascal Jolivet in the Loire Valley, this is a lightly wooded, naturally fermented Sauvignon Blanc that’s made with minimal sulphur dioxide. Savoury, wild and leesy, it has lovely freshness and complexity and a saline, Sancerrelike tang.

The 2016 Metis Sauvignon Blanc is a wild ferment with no settling or enzymes, a little SO2 added just after fermented. It has an attractive bouquet: gooseberry, Granny Smith, a suggestion of wild mint and fennel. The palate is well balanced with more weight and volume than the Sauvignon Blanc, notes of gooseberry, kiwi fruit and a touch of lemon zest, fanning out in satisfying fashion on the finish. Drink over the next 4-6 years. 2017-2024

Grassy but not overly herbaceous and in check with delicious thyme and sage. Full and flavorful body that shows precision and refinement as well as depth. Screw cap. Drink now and enjoy! A joint venture wine with the famous Loire producer of Pascal Jolivet.
