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.
