Cracka Review

Everyone mentions Marlborough and Central Otago in relation to Kiwi regions but what of Hawkes Bay? This is a place that is produciong stellar whiteds and reds and CJ Pask is at the forefront. The Roy’s Hill range celebrates the everyday drinking style and this stylish savvy demands to be drunk every day. It’s zesty and herbaceous with passionfruit and vivid tropical flavours and plenty of zesty refreshment.

Winemaker's Notes

The fruit for this wine was sourced from our Gimblett Road vineyards as well as from Crownthorpe, a cooler more elevated vineyard site. This Sauvignon Blanc was given a cool ferment in stainless steel to retain the lively, fresh herbaceous characters the fruit exhibited.

Colour: Light straw with green hue.

Aroma: Fresh lifted herbaceous characters with zesty tropical fruits.

Palate: A fresh, tangy Sauvignon Blanc. Fresh capsicum, passionfruit and herbal flavours with lifted tropical fruits combine to give this wine a broad spectrum of flavours. Enjoy now.

Michael Cooper (2004 Vintage) says
Winemaker Kate Radburnd aims for 'an easy-drinking style with its emphasis on tropical-fruit flavours and a tangy lift'. The 2004 vintage grown in the Gimblett Gravels and Crownthorpe districts of Hawke's Bay, is a crisp, medium-bodied dry wine, citrusy, appley and limey, with reasonable depth. It lacks real ripeness and intensity, but is priced right.
