Metis Sauvignon Blanc was inspired by Pascal Jolivet and his holistic approach to winemaking in Sancerre. Using a unique and minimalistic approach to winemaking, we were able to make a wine that shows the true expression of the Constantia terroir.
The name Metis refers to the collaboration between the two winemakers to produce this great wine. This fusion of philosophies is reflected in the flower on the label that is a hybrid of the South African Protea and French Iris.
Notes and Reviews
The wine displays typical and atypical Sauvignon blanc traits due to the way it is made. It has an expressive, rich and energetic palate with unique savoury and mineral flavours. It finishes off with a burst of fresh acidity that it long and full.
