Te Mata Estate 'Cape Crest' Sauvignon Blanc, Hawke's Bay, New Zealand 2020
93 Points Wine Enthusiast
Te Mata's barrel-fermented Sauvignon is blended with a little Semillon and Sauvignon Gris. This vintage is as deftly crafted as the last but is more tightly wound when first opened. Give it air and only a quick chill to allow the citrus, dried tarragon, white blossoms and cream to shine. The acidity is bracing and the oak shows a bit on the palate, but overall there's beautiful length, texture and flavor depth on this well-structured wine.
