Winery notes (2015 Vintage)
"A tropical dream of passion fruit, guava and lime. Enticing layers of toasted almonds and freshly baked brioche. With beautifully-integrated oak, the generous palate is lifted by hints of honeysuckle, nectarine and grapefruit. Refreshing, fruity, complex and elegant – this is signature Cape Crest – the best we’ve ever made. Stunning."
95/100 Gary Walsh, The Wine Front, March 2017 (2015 Vintage)
"One of the wilder, more funky expressions of Sauvignon about. They do a good job of it too at Te Mata. Smoky, spicy, tomato plant, marzipan, passionfruit and guava. Medium bodied, a riot of citrus, smoke and vanilla, herbal perfume, with zesty grapefruit acidity, bursting through the finish with lime and vanilla, zip and tang. It’s a 60s Batman TV series fight scene of a wine!!"
5 Stars & 95/100 Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, March 2017 (2015 Vintage)​​
"Intensely aromatic notes of grape fruit, white stone fruit and dried herbs together with nuances of almond and oatmeal. Concentrated and impressively weighted on the palate, and delivers excellent focus and vibrant mouthfeel, superbly structured by crisp acidity.​"
5 Stars & 19.0-/20 Raymond Chan, March 2017 (2015 Vintage)
"Bright, pale straw-yellow colour. The nose is full with sweetly ripe, densely packed aromas of ripe greengages and nectarines, unfolding an array of green stonefruits and tropical fruits entwined with creamy barrel-ferment and nutty complexing layers. Dry to taste and medium-full bodied, the palate possesses rich and layered, mouthfilling flavours of greengages, citrus and stonefruits along with tropical fruits, lantana, dark herbs and nutty oak. The mouthfeel is rounded and creamy, the wine following a fine line of grip and texture with good acid tension. This is lush and rich, and quite approachable now, but will keep 4+ years. A blend of 85% Sauvignon Blanc, 11% Sauvignon Gris and 4% Sémillon, barrel-fermented to 13.5% alc., the wine aged 8 months in oak with batonnage."
