90% Sauvignon Blanc, 6% Sémillon, 4% Sauvignon Gris


Winery notes (2018 Vintage)
"Pale lemon with flecks of lime-green, Cape Crest Sauvignon Blanc ’18 overflows with tropical fruit and rich, succulent acidity. Aromatic notes of fresh lime, gooseberry, lychee and pineapple, give way on the palate to juicy pear, ripe grapefruit, citrus blossom and subtle char and fennel notes.

A unique New Zealand sauvignon blanc style, Cape Crest ’18 is exotic, complex, long and simply saturated with ripe, fresh, lush fruit flavours."


5 Stars & 95/100 Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, February 2019 (2018 Vintage)
"A splendid rendition of the variety; the intensely aromatic bouquet shows kaffir lime, feijoa, sweet basil and dried herb characters with a touch of almond note. The palate is powerful and dynamic, displaying wonderful mid palate weight and vibrancy, leading to a persistent refined finish. It is pristine yet complex with layers of fine texture and mouth-watering flavours. At its best: now to 2028."


5 Stars Michael Cooper (2018 Vintage)
"This oak-aged Hawke's Bay label is impressive for its ripely herbal, complex, sustained flavours. Most of the grapes are hand-picked in the company's relatively warm Bullnose Vineyard, inland from Hastings (the rest is grown at Woodthorpe, in the Dartmoor Valley), and the blend includes small proportions of Sémillon (to add longevity) and Sauvignon Gris (which contributes weight and mouthfeel). The wine is fully fermented and lees-aged for about eight months in French oak barriques (partly new). In a vertical tasting, the two to four-year-old wines look best – still fresh, but very harmonious. Bouquet is fragrant and ripely herbal, and the palate is full-bodied and sweet-fruited, with a strong surge of passion fruit/lime flavours and a subtle seasoning of oak."
