Te Mata Estate Cape Crest Sauvignon Blanc 2013

Winemaker's Notes:

Cape Crest '13 is a brilliant diamond-white colour with wonderful notes of ripe lime, white flowers and lemon curd. The palate shows great concentration of guava, toast and smoked figs, with great acid cut and precision. Its weight balance and sustained finish ensure Cape Crest '13 will develop over a decade or more. Already delicious, with amazing potential. It's a gem! It is a blend of 86% Sauvignon Blanc, 9% Semillon, and 5% Sauvignon Gris and will continue to develop in bottle for five years from harvest. This wine is a wonderful example of Hawke's Bay's remarkable 2013 growing season, already described by the UK's Decanter magazine as 'the stuff of legends'. - Winery Tasting Notes
