The story of Groot Constantia goes back to 1685 when Simon van der Stel, later governor of the cape, was granted land for a farm on the Eastern side of Table Mountain which he named Constantia.
Their winemaker, Boela Gerber, was recently awarded the Trophy for ‘Diners Club Young Winemaker of the Year’.

Notes: A full-bodied white wine showing the typical character of the Sauvignon Blanc grown in the cool climate of Constantia Valley. Distinct ripe fig and gooseberry flavours with green peppery and grassy undertones. An elegant wine with a fresh acidity and a diverse complexity.
