The grapes for Estate Vineyards Sauvignon Blanc ’14 were harvested between 4th March and 11th March 2014 from Te Mata Estate’s own vineyards in the Bridge Pa Triangle and Woodthorpe Terraces sub-regions 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.
Estate Vineyards Sauvignon Blanc consistently displays the characteristics of full ripeness; intense citrus and floral aromas, with concentrated lime and passionfruit on a long, fine palate.

Winery Tasting Notes
A brilliant pale straw colour with gold lights.
An aroma of lime and exotic tropical fruit gives way to a succulent palate of ripe gooseberry, clover honey, passionfruit, currants and citrus. The finish is long, generous and finely balanced with a touch of lemon honey.
Estate Vineyards Sauvignon Blanc ’14 is best served chilled, either as a refreshing pre-dinner glass of wine, or with salads, seafood dishes, and lightly spiced Asian foods.
Estate Vineyards Sauvignon Blanc ’14 can be enjoyed immediately upon release and will continue to develop in bottle for two years from harvest.
