With sauvignon blanc grapes of such quality, minimal winemaking means the finer aromatics and flavours are preserved. At the winery, the grapes were chilled, gently pressed, and the juice cold-settled before fermentation in stainless steel tanks. The finished wines received three months’ maturation before blending, fining, then bottling, in late August 2015.
2015 Estate Sauvignon Blanc
Te Mata Tasting Note
The purity of fruit from the 2015 harvest is the star of the Estate Vineyards Sauvignon Blanc ’15. Perfumes of passionfruit, gooseberry and citrus blossom all jump out of the glass. Subtropical fruit, lime and guava sparkle across a bone-dry and brilliantly crisp palate. With balance, structure and length through to its fine, fresh finish, Estate Vineyards Sauvignon Blanc ’15 delivers all the charm of vintage 2015 in one refreshing mouthful.
Hawke’s Bay’s warm climate and free draining soils produce sauvignon blanc with ripe fruit characters, balanced by fresh acidity, without the need for residual sugar.
