Region: Hawke's Bay, New Zealand

Grape Variety: Sauvignon Blanc, Semillon, Sauvignon Gris

Rating: WE 93


Highlights / Critic Review:

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. 



Tasting Notes:

Pale lemon in colour. 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. Capable to evolve in the bottle for 10 years from harvest.
