Original Winemaking Note

Cape Crest '93

The grapes are destemmed and crushed, the juice is drained, settled and then one-third is fermented in a mixture of new and older oak barrels. The remainder is fermented in stainless steel. The wine was blended and bottled in early October.

Vineyards

Te Awanga

Cape Crest and its gannet symbol refer to Cape Kidnappers, the southern point of Hawke Bay, home to the world’s largest mainland colony of these remarkable marine birds.

1993 Cape Crest Sauvignon Blanc is made from hand-harvested grapes off a 4 acre vineyard at Te Awanga, the nearest settlement to Cape Kidnappers.
