Description

  • White peach
  • Pineapple
  • Lemon blossom
  • Roasted cashew

"Delightfully fruited and inviting, the bouquet shows ripe peach, rockmelon, vanilla and roasted cashew characters, leading to a beautifully weighted palate that’s rounded and creamy. It’s elegant and flavoursome at the same time, offering terrific drinking" Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, Feb 2020

A brilliant yellow gleam with flickering green lights in the glass, Estate Vineyards Chardonnay ’18 has an immediate aroma of bright lemon blossom, ripe white peach and pineapple. Summer fruits unfurl with weight and texture alongside popcorn, roasted cashews, and a floral lemonade-and-tonic character that builds to a long, fine finish. Estate Vineyards Chardonnay ’18 is simply delicious. This wine will continue to evolve in bottle for two to four years from harvest.

Sourced exclusively from Te Mata Estate’s own vineyards, the Estate vineyards wines are blended to represent the best qualities of their variety, vintage, and Hawke’s Bay origin. The grapes for Estate Vineyards Chardonnay ’18 were harvested between 3 and 28 March 2018 from Te Mata Estate’s own vineyards in the Woodthorpe Terraces, Bridge Pa Triangle and Havelock Hills sub-regions of Hawke’s Bay.

Estate Vineyards Chardonnay ’18 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 the remainder of the wine to enhance the complexity, richness and integration. Modern and traditional de-stemming and tank fermentation was used for a portion of the grapes to preserve the vibrant varietal aromas and clear, fresh fruit expression.

Food Pairing: Partner with scallops, simply prepared, at sundown.
