Winery notes (2016 Vintage)
"Refreshing and elegant, Cape Crest ’16 is a New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc of distinct refinement. Pale, straw-coloured and with flecks of brilliant lime-green, this sauvignon blend has complexing aromas of gooseberry, fennel, grapefruit and red currants. Toasted coconut and textured spice from French oak development combines with guava, mango, concentrated citrus, white flowers and creamy, clover honey to give this moreish wine its unique level of weight, depth and length.

The separate parcels were each destemmed and lightly crushed, then cooled before a brief period of skin contact. Following pressing and cold-settling, they were run to a mixture of new and seasoned French oak barrels for fermentation. The resulting wines were aged on lees, with regular stirring, for a further nine months before blending in January 2017. The blend was returned to tank for further maturation on fine lees, before fining and bottling. Cape Crest ’16 is a blend of 87% sauvignon blanc, 9% semillon and 4% sauvignon gris. "
93/100 Bob Campbell MW, November 2017 (2016 Vintage)
"100% barrel fermented with 11 months in oak. A blend with semillon (9%) and sauvignon gris (4%). An appealingly ethereal texture, with good weight and richness. Clean, crisp and bone-dry wine with concentrated nectarine, white peach, toast and subtle nut flavours"
