Te Mata ‘Estate Vineyards’ Hawke’s Bay Sauvignon Blanc 2017

Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand - Hawke's Bay
Review Date : 06-Mar-2018
Bright, very pale straw colour, very light edged. The nose is very fresh and bright with aromas of pungent passionfruit and nettles and a minerally edge. This is tight and slightly lean, but is pure and focussed. Dry to taste and medium-bodied, the palate is taut and near-austere, quite minerally and mouthwatering, with nettles, cut-grass and fresh herbs, and subtle passionfruit notes. The mouthfeel possesses very fine phenolic textures and pin-point acidity, and finishes with mineral elements. A tight and slender, cooler-spectrum wine with purity and focus. Drink over the next 2 years. Fruit from the company’s Bridge Pa Triangle and ‘Woodthorpe Terraces’ vineyards, cool-fermented in stainless-steel to 12.0% alc. 17.0+/20 Mar 2018 RRP $22.00
