What’s in the glass tonight Feb 1st


Te Mata Cape Crest 2011

From the Cellar: Te Mata Estate Hawkes Bay Sauvignon Blanc 2011 – $$

This is a stellar wine. I bought a couple of bottles after the Te Mata tasting in 2012, loved it so much.

Pale straw in glass. 13%. Powerful herby nose of lemongrass, flat leaf parsley and coriander. Crisp citrus in the mouth, with a loooong finish of parsley and bags of fresh mint. Supa yum! 4.5

The sun as fallen behind the hill, and now L and I are off to The Laundry for dinner…
