Te Mata Estate Sauvignon Blanc Hawkes Bay Woodthorpe 2010
Woodthorpe Sauvignon Blanc ‘10 has a fresh, light green colour with lovely aromas of guava, passionfruit, and lime. These tropical fruit characteristics continue in the full palate with a delicious mineral texture and long, crisp finish. Woodthorpe Sauvignon Blanc ‘10 is best served chilled, either as a refreshing pre-dinner glass of wine or with salads, seafood dishes, and lightly spiced Asian foods. It can be enjoyed immediately upon release and will continue to develop in bottle for two years from harvest.
Editorial Reviews for Te Mata Estate Sauvignon Blanc Hawkes Bay Woodthorpe
Earthy and more herbal than peppery on the nose with light notes of nettles and rather assertive tropical fruit. Moderately intense guava notes with some hints of passion fruit and pineapple, and just an edge of cut grass. Fine focus in the mouth. This is bright yet shows some restraint with well layered if slightly subtle flavors. The back end shows nice ripe citrus and orange notes, finishing cleanly with a touch of saltiness and nice pithy flavor. Good length, nice river stone note on the finale. 88pts
