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.
2018 Estate Sauvignon Blanc
Te Mata Tasting Note
Lemon diamond in colour, Estate Vineyards Sauvignon Blanc ’18 immediately entrances with the aroma of tropical passionfruit, mango, and honeydew melon. With notes of lifted gooseberry, lime blossom, pears and summer herbs, the palate is generous and dry, carrying effortlessly to a balanced and delicate, fine and crisp finish.
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.
