Tasting Notes 2003

Woodthorpe Sauvignon Blanc 2003 has a pale straw colour. It displays aromas of lime zest, with hints of nectarine and kiwifruit, leading to a crisp dry palate accentuating the nectarine character. The finish is long and elegant with crisp acidity.

Woodthorpe Sauvignon Blanc is best enjoyed chilled, as an aperitif, or as an accompaniment to fresh garden salads, seafood, lightly spiced and Asian dishes.

It is released ready to drink and will continue to improve in bottle for 12 – 18 months from harvest.

The selected bunches were gently handled to release a crisp, clear juice, this was then fermented to dryness at cold temperatures to retain the fruit characters and freshness. The new wine was then racked off lees before ageing for three months. It was then fined and bottled in August 2003.


The grapes for Woodthorpe Sauvignon Blanc 2003 were hand harvested between the 14th March and 3rd April.


Sourced exclusively from Te Mata Estate’s own vineyards, the estate vineyards wines are blended to represent the best qualities of their variety, vintage and Hawke’s Bay origin.
