Tasting Notes 2006

Woodthorpe Sauvignon Blanc consistently displays the characteristics of fully ripe sauvignon blanc grapes; intense citrus and floral aromas, with concentrated flavours of green tropical fruits on a long, fine palate. The wonderful 2006 vintage and careful handling at the winery has provided the finest expression of these flavours to date.

Woodthorpe Sauvignon Blanc 2006 is light lemon-gold in colour with exotic aromas of guava, lime, and red currants. The palate is crisp, concentrated and finely textured, showing flavours of pear and lime juice, with a sustained finish.

Woodthorpe Sauvignon Blanc 2005 is best served chilled, either as a refreshing pre-dinner glass of wine or partnered with salads, seafood dishes, or lightly spiced Asian foods. It will continue to improve in bottle for two years from harvest.

Technical Analysis

pH: 3.4
Total acidity as tartaric: 6.8g/l
Alcohol: 12.5%
Residual sugar: Nil


The grapes were destemmed, chilled and drained to release fine, clear juice which was then fermented to complete dryness at cool temperatures. The resulting wine was then racked  off its fermentation lees before maturation in tank. It was then fined before being bottled in May 2006.


Woodthorpe Sauvignon Blanc 2006 was harvested from Te Mata Estate’s Woodthorpe vineyard between the 11th and 17th March 2006. It is a single vineyard wine.


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.
