The name Perdeblokke, refers to the horses that tilled the soils of the steep slopes that lie 200-220 metres above sea level on the slopes of the Constantiaberg Mountain. Since it was planted, the Perdeblokke has yielded top quality and a distinctly unique Sauvignon Blanc, which prompted the decision to produce this special label wine in 2005. It is only made in years of exceptional quality.

Straw-like in appearance with a light green tint. An intense nose that bursts with aromas of blackcurrant, fig and flint. The palate is rich and complex with a crisp minerality that truly expresses the Perdeblokke terroir. Complimented by a fine acidity, the wine concludes with a long and powerful finish.

Situated in the heart of the Constantia Wine Route, Klein Constantia produces wines that reflect the unique terroir. Close proximity to the sea results in winds that flow across the Constantia Valley from False Bay in the summer months, providing a perfect cooling effect on the higher altitude vineyards while the lower slopes enjoy warmer temperatures. Klein Constantia's premium Estate range is spearheaded by a world acclaimed and highly popular Sauvignon Blanc, and a Cabernet Sauvignon that regularly garners awards and praise as one of South Africa's best wines.

The grapes were hand harvested from a selection of the higher vineyards. Blocks with a high acidity and low pH were selected to withstand the way in which the wine is made. The wine underwent a long, cool fermentation and was left to mature on its fine lees for 9 months in stainless steel tanks. There was no sulphur added at crush, no settling and there was minimal winemaking interference.
