92 points "93 points James Suckling Hawke's Bay doing Sauvignon Blanc? Yes indeedy. This is a great food wine with a rich mid palate and lovely line. It has an attractive perfume, reminiscent of blackcurrant and grass, and some nutty nuances from 25% new oak. High level of fruit concentration suggestive of low yields. zesty acidity leaves a crisp finish. (RG) 92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate Blended of Sauvignon Blanc, Sauvignon Gris and Semillon coming from 35-40 year old vines on a hillside vineyard, the 2013 Sauvignon Blanc Cape Crest was barrel fermented and aged for one year. The nose is redolent of lovely grapefruit, toast, lemon curd and passion fruit notes with hints of cedar and yeast. The palate provides a nice core of vibrant grapefruit and tropical flavors, with the oak well integrated but noticeable, and it finishes fresh with great length. Drinking nicely now, it should age 5-7 years+. (92+) (12/2015) " Best 2016-2019
