5 Stars - Michael Cooper Listener Magazine March 2021
"Delicious now, this is a classic example of the weighty, ripely flavoured Hawke’s Bay regional style. Fully barrel-fermented, it is fragrant and mouthfi lling, with concentrated tropical-fruit flavours, gently enriched with oak, impressive complexity and a dry, well-rounded finish."

A captivating bouquet with its distinctive barrel ferment attact, fruits aromas of grapefruit, apples, pears and peach. Lees adds a complexity and harmony as well as complexity. Crisp, refreshing and dry. There's a mix of dried herb and spice as well as fresh herb. Lovely textures with a fine lees and fruit tannin layers. Delicious, fresh and lengthy. Best drinking from today and thorugh 2025+.

Winery description;

"Diamond-clear with lime green highlights, Cape Crest Sauvignon Blanc ’19 gives ripe tropical fruit, complexity and length for days. Aromas of yuzu, guava, kaffir lime and luscious white nectarine give way to palate of passionfruit, grapefruit, gooseberry, pear and crushed herbs, with just hint of sea-salt and smoke at the end of the long dry finish. A wine with great ageing potential as well as concentrated fruit, walking a long green tightrope between elegant and refreshing."

"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 eight months before bottling in January 2020. The blend was returned to tank for further maturation on fine lees, before fining and bottling. Cape Crest ’19 is a blend of 86% sauvignon blanc, 8% semillon and 6% sauvignon gris."

A delicious European styled Sauvignon Blanc, stunning!
