The grapes were destemmed and crushed, drained and cold settled, and then all fermented and aged in barrel until the finished wine was bottled in December.

Original Te Mata Tasting Note
2000 Cape Crest has a pale lemon/straw colour, aromas of pear, fennel and toast flowing into a palate with similar flavours and a sustained dry finish. 2000 Cape Crest has the potential to develop and intensify in bottle for 3 to 5 years and will take on a toasty character with age. It is an ideal aperitif, served cool, or will partner dishes such as Caesar salad, smoked fish or chicken and lightly spiced Asian food.
