Expert Reviews

Slight smoky top note, passionfruit, guava and lime with some nettle-like herbal character, though it’s neatly in the background. Light, fresh, lime and guava tang, pure acidity, a little bit of crunch and flint on a long clean finish. Lovely expression of NZ Sauvignon. Not so brash and abrasive as Marlborough with super ease of drinking too. Rating 93 - Drink by 2019, Gary Walsh, winefront.com.au (MAR/2016).

Winery Tasting Notes

Colour

A brilliant pale straw colour with gold lights.

Aroma

Perfumes of passionfruit, gooseberry and citrus blossom all jump out of the glass.

Palate

Subtropical fruit, lime and guava sparkle across a bone-dry and brilliantly crisp palate. With balance, structure and length through to its fine, fresh finish, Estate Vineyards Sauvignon Blanc ’15 delivers all the charm of vintage 2015 in one refreshing mouthful.

Cellaring Potential

Estate Vineyards Sauvignon Blanc ’15 can be enjoyed immediately upon release and will continue to develop in bottle for two years from harvest.

Food Matching

Estate Vineyards Sauvignon Blanc ’15 is best served chilled, either as a refreshing pre-dinner glass of wine, or with salads, seafood dishes, and lightly spiced Asian foods.

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

Te Mata Estate is New Zealand’s oldest winery, dating from the early 1890s. It is a New Zealand family-owned winery – a true estate, specialising in grape growing and winemaking from its nine Hawke’s Bay vineyards. It is acknowledged as one of only five icon wineries in New Zealand.

Under the direction of John Buck, Te Mata Estate has, over nearly thirty years, produced a stunning array of red and white wines including famous labels such as Coleraine, Awatea cabernets/merlots, Bullnose syrah, Elston chardonnay, Cape Crest sauvignon blanc and, launched in 2009, Zara viognier. Te Mata Estate has also developed a unique single vineyard from which it produces its Woodthorpe wines.

Te Mata Estate makes wines from hand-harvested grapes from its own vineyards. These vineyards are all located in Hawkes Bay (within 40 minutes drive of the winery) and under the direct control of Te Mata Estate’s viticultural team.

Total land area: 600 acres (240 hectares). Total planted vineyard area: 300 acres (120 hectares).
