Eagles’ Nest, located on the crest of Constantia Nek pass, is nestled at the foot of the awe inspiring Table Mountain. This pristine and boutique family owned vineyard (38 Ha in size) has in recent years gained a striking reputation for both its beauty
and award-winning wines.
This is the 7th vintage of Sauvignon Blanc made on the estate. The grapes come from two cooler-climate coastal vineyard sites especially chosen for their ability to produce world-class Sauvignon Blanc. We hand-harvested the grapes.

Appearance: Aroma: Taste
The nose initially shows opulent tropical fruit aromas, including flavors of pineapple and gooseberries. These notes are underpinned by a fresh zesty core. As the wine evolves, it develops green apple and kiwi aromas, with intriguing floral tones.
The palate is fresh, with juicy yellow fruit. Six month’s lees contact shapes a well-structured mid pallet balanced by beautiful fresh acidity.
Personal Food pairing:
This wine will be ideally paired with sushi, grilled fish and shellfish.
When pairing wine with shellfish, it’s best to think in terms of how it’s cooked (steamed, grilled, etc.) its taste, and how tender it is after cooked. Since there are many kinds of shellfish, I’d suggest Sauvignon Blanc pairings for only the most popular types: crayfish, crab, prawns, clams and oysters.
Enjoy now or to 2023.
