Te Mata (Hawkes Bay) 2020 Cape Crest Sauvignon Blanc

Listed on Fine Wines Of New Zealand list 2019 (2019 vintage)

Winery description;

The 2020 is a remarkable Cape Crest; palest lemon and brilliant in the glass. Luscious citrus and succulent stone fruit slide effortlessly towards a precise and lingering finish of gooseberry, lime and sea salt. Among all the ripe and pure fruit on the palate floats crunchy acidity and complexing grace-notes of dill, coriander, beeswax and woodsmoke. Cape Crest Sauvignon Blanc ’20 is a signature example, with drive, moreish appeal and elegance to spare.

The separate parcels were each destemmed and lightly crushed, then cooled before a brief period of skin contact. Following pressing and cold-settling, they were run to a mixture of new and seasoned French oak barrels for fermentation. The resulting wines were aged on lees, with regular stirring, for a further 11 months before bottling in February 2021. Cape Crest ’20 is a blend of 85% sauvignon blanc, 9% semillon and 6% sauvignon gris.

Like most Sauvignon this can be enjoyed young and fresh and best served chilled. But don’t be shy to throw a couple of bottles in the cellar, it should evolve nicely between 3-5 years from vintage.

A delicious European styled Sauvignon Blanc, stunning!

98 Points - Gary Walsh, Wine Front

"Easily one of the best wines I’ve tasted in the last decade."


Surely New Zealands Most Famous red wine. First produced in 1982 now at Icon status

Winery note
"Coleraine derives its name from the Coleraine vineyard, home of John and Wendy Buck of Te Mata Estate. John’s late grandfather was born in Coleraine in Northern Ireland and the name has been maintained through the family home to the wine. A single vineyard wine until 1989, Coleraine is an assemblage of the finest wines produced from distinct plots within Te Mata Estate’s oldest Havelock Hills vineyards first planted in 1892.

Coleraine ’20 was hand harvested from separate plots within Te Mata’s vineyards between 19 March and 2 April 2020. WINEMAKING Each parcel of grapes was destemmed before a traditional warm, plunged fermentation and extended maceration on skins. The resulting wines were then run to predominately new French oak barrels for 17 months’ maturation. Throughout this time, they were regularly topped and racked. The assemblage was made in January 2021. The finished wine was bottled in December 2021. The final blend is 57% cabernet sauvignon, 36% merlot and 7% cabernet franc.

 A gleaming obsidian-dark, Coleraine ’20 flashes in the glass. From its depths glimmers wild roses and cedar, blackcurrants, dark cherries, plums - a rapid symmetry of perfectly ripe dark fruit. Notes of cocoa-nib, thyme, and layer upon layer of fine tannin are polished to a mirror-finish, shimmering the length of the wine. From its elevated aromatics to its monumental mid-palate weight, intense vitality, and long radiant finish, Coleraine ’20 is a window on midnight. Replete in detail. Out of darkness emerges an immense wine of clarity, concentration and focus. Coleraine 2020 is a perfect vision"
