Constantia Glen Sauvignon Blanc 2010 91+ Points

Still youthful with pale bright straw and slight green reflections, surprisingly fresh and spicy peppery note, ripe gooseberries, passion fruit flower and candied kiwi, the slight honey on the texture give some indication of it's evolution, this is a stayer and will reward many more years of sipping, best enjoyed with food, very Sancerre like, smart wine.
Marginally better than the 2011 vintage with clearer precision, see separate post.
