  • Cape Crest Sauvignon Blanc, Hawke’s Bay — 2022 – Vinous – 91 Points

    "The 2022 Sauvignon Blanc Cape Crest is a generous, textural expression with a slightly saline edge on the mouthwatering finish. Well-integrated vanillins combine with blackcurrant, nectarine, red grapefruit and a hint of gooseberry flavors to provide a rarely seen side of Kiwi Sauvignon Blanc – no doubt the addition of Sémillon and Sauvignon Gris play their part. This is attractive and judiciously made."
