A stunning Sauvignon Blanc from Dean Shaw who has been making some of New Zealand’s best offerings.
This Sauvignon Blanc is drinking beautifully now even with the age on it. Hints of grapefruit, lime and greengage plum aromatics gives way to an exuberant, fresh lifted palate showing good intensity. Drinking beautifully now especially over Summer!
This crisply styled, refreshing wine has a wonderful combination of lime, passionfruit and gooseberry aromas with a hint of minerality – typical stylish Sauvignon Blanc! Best paired with seafood and pasta dishes and delicious summer salads. While this wine is ready to drink now, it can also be cellared for up to two years.
Diamond-clear with lime green highlights, Cape Crest Sauvignon Blanc ’19 gives ripe tropical fruit, complexity and length for days. Aromas of yuzu, guava, kaffir lime and luscious white nectarine give way to palate of passionfruit, grapefruit, gooseberry, pear and crushed herbs, with just hint of sea-salt and smoke at the end of the long dry finish. A wine with great ageing potential as well as concentrated fruit, walking a long green tightrope between elegant and refreshing.
This blend of skins fermentations with the more traditional pressed juice results in an exotically perfumed wine, with aromas of grapefruit, guava, green papaya salad and Vietnamese mint. The palate compliments, an intense nose, with flavours of ginger,lemon grass and cinnamon.The 2019 season with it lower yields and great balance of sugar and flavour intensity has resulted in a wine with real palate volume and a long lingering finish. The balance of acid and phenolics from the skins will see this wine developing further over the next 5 years.
The brand new vintage of this lovely and excellent value Sav/Blanc, when it came to the crunch and the all important value for money it delivers hands down. Not just your usual grassy, semi-sweet run of the mill Sav/Blanc but a wine that truly captures the essence of Marlborough, lovely acidity, pungent with beautiful middle palate and concentration, very clean and generous also full body, classic Marlborough really. At $16.95 per bottle it is hard to pass considering the quality of many commercial ones on the same price bracket.
