With sauvignon blanc grapes of such quality, minimal winemaking means the finer aromatics and flavours are preserved. At the winery, the grapes were simply chilled, gently pressed and the juice cold-settled before cool fermentation in stainless steel tanks.

Te Mata Tasting Note
Estate Vineyards Sauvignon Blanc ’12 has a pale straw colour with green lights. Lovely aromas of lemongrass and coriander lend an exotic note to lime, passionfruit and blackcurrant leaf characters. The palate is crisp and mouth-filling, with fresh acidity providing a fine structure to a long, dry, mineral finish.
