Te Mata Cape Crest Sauvignon Blanc 2019
Te Mata Cape Crest Sauvignon Blanc
Region: Hawkes Bay, New Zealand
Bottle size: 75cl
Grape: Sauvignon Blanc
A bright and pale straw colour, immediately offers up notes of guava, lime juice, white nectarine and white peach, that all lead into a palate exploding with tropical fruit, salinity, and a fine, crystalline acidity. The perfect match for a plump fresh oyster in its half shell, the complexing notes of woodsmoke, grapefruit and juniper make it satisfy now yet more than capable of ageing. Moreish and complex, this a wine of immense reward.
Cape Crest and its gannet symbol refer to Cape Kidnappers, the southern point of Hawke Bay, home to the world’s largest mainland colony of these remarkable marine birds.
Te Mata Estate was established in 1896 and remains family-owned, creating small batches of internationally recognised wines from their Hawkes Bay vineyards and in New Zealand’s oldest wine cellar.
