Overview

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.
