Original Winemaking Note

Cape Crest '95

The grapes were destemmed, crushed, cold drained and settled, and then half the juice was fermented in new and older barrels and the remainder in tank. Following barrel ageing and final blending the wine was bottled in late September.

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.
