Te Mata ‘Estate Vineyards’ Hawke’s Bay Sauvignon Blanc 2014

Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand - Hawke's Bay
Review Date : 05-Mar-2015
Pale straw-yellow colour, lighter on rim. The nose is fresh, full and bold in aromatics, showing gooseberries, grass and tropical fruits. The varietal expression is bright, clear and has good depth. Dry to taste, tightly bound flavours of gooseberries and cut grass are lifted by esters elements and complexed by some mouthwatering flintiness. The mouthfeel is very dry with a fine phenolic line and crisp, cutting acidity. The palate carries to a dry, tightly bound, cooler spectrum grassy finish. This is a dry Sauvignon that has clear and mouthwatering grassy, gooseberry flavours. Drink over the next 2 years. Fruit from the Bridge Pa Triangle and Woodthorpe Teraces, cool-fermented in stainless-steel to 13.0% alc. 17.5-/20 Mar 2015 RRP $18.00 Pale straw colour with green hues, this has a soft and harmonious nose of gooseberry fruit with hints of tropical fruits. Dry to taste and medium-bodied, this is softly presented with flavours of gooseberries and citrus fruits. The mouthfeel is soft and accessible, the acidity gentle, but very positive, lending length. This very approachable now and will drink well over the next 2 years. Fruit from the Bridge Pa Triangle and Woodthorpe Terraces, cool-fermented in stainless-steel to 13.0% alc. 17.5/20 Nov 2014 RRP $20.00
