Lisa Perrotti-Brown - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:

Blended of Sauvignon Blanc, Sauvignon Gris and Semillon coming from 35-40 year old vines on a hillside vineyard, the 2013 Sauvignon Blanc Cape Crest was barrel fermented and aged for one year. The nose is redolent of lovely grapefruit, toast, lemon curd and passion fruit notes with hints of cedar and yeast. The palate provides a nice core of vibrant grapefruit and tropical flavors, with the oak well integrated but noticeable, and it finishes fresh with great length. Drinking nicely now, it should age 5-7 years+.

Product Description:

Cape Crest '13 is a brilliant diamond-white colour with wonderful notes of ripe lime, white flowers and lemon curd. The palate shows great concentration of guava, toast and smoked figs, with great acid cut and precision. Its weight balance and sustained finish ensure Cape Crest '13 will develop over a decade or more. Already delicious, with amazing potential. It's a gem! It is a blend of 86% Sauvignon Blanc, 9% Semillon, and 5% Sauvignon Gris and will continue to develop in bottle for five years from harvest. This wine is a wonderful example of Hawke's Bay's remarkable 2013 growing season, already described by the UK's Decanter magazine as 'the stuff of legends'. - Winery Tasting Notes
