The grapes for Estate Sauvignon Blanc '21 were harvested between 25 February and 8 March 2021 from Te Mata Estate's own vineyards in the Bridge Pa Triangle and Havelock Hills sub-region of Hawke's Bay. Hawke's Bay's warm climate and free draining soils produce sauvignon blanc with ripe fruit characters, balanced by fresh acidity, without the need for residual sugar.
With sauvignon blanc grapes of such quality, minimal winemaking means the finer aromatics and flavours are preserved. At the winery, the grapes were chilled, gently pressed, and the juice cold-settled before fermentation in stainless steel tanks.
Estate Sauvignon Blanc '21 is brilliant white gold, and packed with the aromas of tropical fruit, from guava to pineapple, ripe grapefruit, Key lime and passionfruit. Concentrated and long, the palate shows more weight with nectarine, white peach and a fine sea-salt edge that only adds to the wine's ripe, thirst-quenching character. Quintessentially Hawke's Bay, Estate Sauvignon Blanc '21 delivers new dimensions of freshness and appeal.
Estate Sauvignon Blanc '21 is best served chilled, either as a refreshing pre-dinner glass of wine, or with salads, seafood dishes, and lightly spiced Asian foods.
