Expert Reviews

El smootho. Lime, banana split topped with almond, floral and herbal top notes, touch of toasty spiced oak. Glides through the mouth with a creamy gloss, but has a passionfruit and grapefruit tang, light chalkiness and a pretty finish – crunch of grapefruit and toast – long too. Beautifully turned out. Rating 94 - Drink by 2020, Gary Walsh, winefront.com.au (MAR/2016).

The 2014 Sauvignon Blanc Cape Crest offers a very expressive, tropical nose with notes of guava, pineapple and green mango over cedar and dried herbs. Ripe, lush and with tons of tropical flavor on the medium-bodied palate, this is an opulent style of Sauvignon with a finish that goes on and on. Rating 90+ - Drink by 2018, Lisa Perrotti-Brown, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (DEC/2015).

Winery Tasting Notes


A tropical dream of passionfruit, guava and lime. Enticing layers of toasted almonds and freshly baked brioche.


With beautifully-integrated oak, the generous palate is lifted by hints of honeysuckle, nectarine and grapefruit. Refreshing, fruity, complex and elegant – this is signature Cape Crest – the best ever made. Stunning.
