In the beautiful area of Constantia, owner Lars Maack and winemaker Brad Paton actually only produce wines in the top segment: fresh and full-bodied wines. The slowly maturing climatic conditions with cold nights and moderate daytime temperatures translate into fresh, crisp and full-bodied wines.

The Buitenspiratie Sauvignon Blanc is a line from their top series. The Sauvignon Blanc is 100% matured in stainless steel but then Sur Lie and at a cold / cool temperature so that the wine can mature and age calmly and this ensures that this wine can become even more beautiful with some aging in the bottle (6 years is No problem). In the glass, the Buitenspiratie Sauvignon Blanc has a pale lemon yellow colour. This is a very nice Sauvignon Blanc with enormous complexity and aromas of gooseberries, green pepper, green figs and grassy notes. The beautiful acidity gives a wonderfully fresh and dry character. Long lingering finish.

De Grote Hamersma: 9-
Not entirely unexpected: a bright green version. It is a style that several winemakers in South Africa adhere to. Gives their white a different kick than their counterparts from the Loire or those always blowing types from New Zealand. Thus: green apple, green as grass, green herbs, green tomatoes, green (yet ripe) pepper, not too ripe gooseberries and yuzu acids crack and taste.

Vineyard for 2022 Buitenverwachting Sauvignon Blanc

The history of the South African winery Buitenverwachting goes back to 1773. Wijnhuis Buitenverwachting introduced the concept of environmentally friendly agriculture, which is better for the land, the worker and less pollution. From 1773, this winery has had no fewer than 16 owners, some of whom have faced many debts.

Despite this history, the winery flourished in 1825, led by Ryk Arnoldus Cloete, brother of the famous Henry of Constantia. In 1981, when the winery was owned by the Mueller family, the vineyards were explored, which led to extensive replanting of the various vineyards. This led to the largest harvest ever for Buitenverwachting in 1985. The winery has since undergone many modernizations, including a completely renovated winery.
