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.

Pure Sangiovese from a selection of the best grapes of our vineyards, uniting traditional and modern technology.

Tenuta Monteti Caburnio Toscana IGT

The story of Tenuta Monteti began in 1998 when, after years of searching, Gemma and Paolo Baratta finally found this corner of Tuscany in the southern Maremma area where they could take up again a project from their youth. In this small valley, 15 km from the sea and 145m above sea level, the fields are protected by the Monteti hill from which the estate takes its name.
Being able to start from scratch, without an old local tradition or the frame of a DOC classification, meant there was freedom to listen to the soil and the climate, and plant the varieties that would respond and express themselves to their best. Petit Verdot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Alicante Bouschet were chosen and in these archaic Mediterranean hills soon they found a very personal expression.

Caburnio is the other, not second, wine. It is named after a spelling mistake in the transcription of a passage of the Natural History by Pliny the Elder, written between 23 and 79 AD, in which, in the illustration of winegrowing in Roman times in the province of Gallia Narbonensis, “vitis Caburnicam” appeared by mistake instead of “Narbonicam, Narbonensis”. It is a complex yet fresh wine and it is very drinkable.

Certified sustainable wine.

Petit Verdot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Alicante Bouschet were chosen and in these archaic Mediterranean hills soon they found a very personal expression.

Monteti is the flagship wine, named like the estate after the hill that protects the vineyards from the strong Mediterranean winds guaranteeing an ideal microclimate thanks to which our vines can benefit, protected, from sea proximity. Monteti has the personality of the Maremman territory subjected however to the complexity and elegance of a great wine: Petit Verdot is the personality, the rebel horse, Cabernet Sauvignon conveys structure and longevity and Cabernet Franc is the feminine element that embraces and softens both. A wine with a “reverse spoon” sensorial trend: with a gentle, attractive entry followed by a full expansion and a long finish.

Certified sustainable wine.

Terlato & Chapoutier L-Block Shiraz

The Terlato & Chapoutier domain is the French company’s third project in Australia, and the second domain in Victoria. Michel Chapoutier joined forces with the Terlato family (the company’s American distributor) in 2000 in the Great Western Victoria’s Pyrenees on clay- and gravel-intensive soil. Already 20 years into what has been a great adventure.

“Lots of earth and spice with some meat and plum aromas and flavors. Full body. Soft and velvety texture with earth, spice and meaty character. A little exaggerated in the funky direction, but fun.” – James Suckling

Organically certification in progress on vintage 2018.
