Te Mata Estate Chardonnay

Sourced exclusively from Te Mata estate’s own vineyards, the Estate Vineyards wines represent the best qualities of their variety, vintage and Hawke’s Bay origin.
Estate Vineyards Chardonnay ’17 combines the best of traditional and modern winemaking. Traditional whole-bunch pressing, barrel fermentation, barrel maturation on gross lees, and malolactic fermentation were all used on a portion of the wine to enhance the complexity, richness and integration. Modern de-stemming and tank fermentation was used for the remainder of the grapes to preserve the vibrant varietal aromas and clear, fresh fruit expression. 2017 was a spectacular chardonnay harvest in Hawke’s Bay. Estate Vineyards Chardonnay ’17 is a pure expression of this exceptional quality.

Te Mata Estate Sauvignon Blanc

Sourced exclusively from Te Mata estate’s own vineyards, the Estate Vineyards wines represent the best qualities of their variety, vintage and Hawke’s Bay origin.
Hawke’s Bay’s warm climate and free draining soils produce Sauvignon Blanc with ripe fruit characters, balanced by fresh acidity, without the need for residual sugar. With grapes of such quality, minimal winemaking means the finer aromatics and flavours are preserved. Refreshingly fine and floral, with an elegance and tropical lift that is pure Hawke’s Bay, Estate Vineyards Sauvignon Blanc ’18 is a wine of immense appeal.

Tenuta Di Sesta Camponovo Toscana Rosso IGT

A wine with a strong character linked to the Montalcino territory: it originates from the union of two local varieties, Sangiovese and Colorino, which blend together giving at first the structure and then the intense color. After ageing in stainless steel vats, it shows a ruby red color, hints of red fruit on the nose and fresh and balanced flavor. Even though it is so drinkable and very approachable on the palate, it maintains the typical strong characteristics of Montalcino wines.

Tenuta Monteti Caburnio Toscana IGT

From his native Lombardy, Paolo Baratta established vineyards in the unexplored deep south of Maremma in 1999. Consultant oenologist Carlo Ferrini makes solely IGT Tuscan red wines from this Estate and since the very first vintage in 2004, success has been theirs. Monteti make wines of great concentration and depth.
Caburnio is their other, not second, wine, named after a passage of the Natural History by Pliny the Elder, written between 23 and 79 AD, in which, in the illustration of wine-growing in Roman times in the province of Gallia Narbonensis, “vitis Caburnicam”: “In the last seven years, a vine which buds in a single day and is therefore very strong, has been introduced in Alba Helvia; it is called Caburnicam and is planted today all over the province.”
With Caburnio 2010 it was reached an excellent synthesis of the characteristics that the wine has shown in the last three years and which represent the aim that Tenuta Monteti pursue with this label: freshness (2009), balance (2008), typical Maremman character (2007).
