Tasting Notes 1999

1999 Cape Crest has a light lemon green colour, a pronounced aroma of feijoa, lime and fennel and the pouilly-fumé ‘gunflint’ character. The palate carries through the ripe fruit flavours and is crisp and dry.

1999 Cape Crest Sauvignon Blanc has the potential to develop and intensify in bottle for 2-4 years from harvest.

Served cool it is an ideal partner for seafood, white meat and Chinese food, as well as being a lovely aperitif.
