Description

Te Mata Cape Crest is an iconic wine, made in a barrel-fermented style that in 2016 is a blend of 87% Sauvignon Blanc, 9% Semillon and 4% Sauvignon Gris. The ripe, tropical Hawkes Bay fruit absorbs the French oak flavours beautifully, creating a wine of finesse, elegance and superb concentration. Awesome when young, it improves for a decade from vintage at least.

Smells

Unmistakable aromas of grapefruit, currants, eastern spices, gooseberry and fennel.

Tastes

Amazing texture and richness, with gentle cardamom suggestions mingling with succulent tropical fruit. Beautifully spicy and seriously long, this 2016 Cape Crest is just a baby, but already showing its quality.
