Pale lemon with flecks of lime-green, Cape Crest Sauvignon Blanc ’18 overflows with tropical fruit and rich, succulent acidity. Aromatic notes of fresh lime, gooseberry, lychee and pineapple, give way on the palate to juicy pear, ripe grapefruit, citrus blossom and subtle char and fennel notes.
A unique New Zealand sauvignon blanc style, Cape Crest ’18 is exotic, complex, long and simply saturated with ripe, fresh, lush fruit flavours.
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.
"Helen has worked very hard at making a style that is suited to her fruit and the district, giving a point of difference to the passionfruity thiol-monsters of the 2016 Marlborough vintage. Elegance, freshness of fruit, more methoxypyrazine gooseberry fruit, bright acidity and delicate textures were the aim, and for this, she’s used some skin contact and 30% in barrel. Very pale straw. The nose is tight and elegant with ripe yellow stonefruits and green stonefruits, and no tropical fruit. On palate crisp and steely with a slippery mouthfeel. Gooseberry fruit with subtle textures and detail. But the fruit and freshness prevail. It’s a more slender wine than some of the worked examples made elsewhere." – Raymond Chan
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.
