    We all know that it’s Marlborough that flies the flag on the international scene for New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc. But Te Mata Estate Cape Crest Sauvignon Blanc has been getting wine buffs in every corner of the globe giddy with excitement upon its release every year since its first vintage in 1984.

    Awarded a top 5 Star write up by Michael Cooper in NZ Listener for the latest ’18 release. Cooper said “This barrel-fermented savvy is weightier and more complex, with slightly softer acidity, than the standard
    Marlborough model.”

    This world famous label is 86% Sauvignon Blanc with the rest of the blend made up of Semillon and a splash of Sauvignon Gris. Fermented in French barrels this is a European style Sauvignon that can be enjoyed young and fresh. Or put in the cellar for another 3-5 years.
