Te Mata Estate Chardonnay 2022 750ml

VINEYARDS: The grapes for Estate Chardonnay ’21 were harvested between 15 February and 2 March 2021 from Te Mata Estate’s own vineyards in the Woodthorpe Terraces, Bridge Pa Triangle and Havelock Hills sub-regions of Hawke’s Bay.

WINEMAKING: Estate Chardonnay ’21 combines the best of traditional and modern winemaking. This involved tank fermentation to preserve the vibrant varietal aromas and clear, fresh fruit expression along with some barrel fermentation, barrel maturation on gross lees, and malolactic fermentation to enhance the complexity, richness and integration.

TASTING NOTE: Palest gold, Estate Chardonnay ’21 immediately shines, with the scents of ripe grapefruit, lemon, white peach, pineapple and freshly baked sourdough all jumping from the glass. Delivering taut acidity and fruit-brightness alongside savoury notes of roast cashew, nougat, cinnamon, and sea salt, this is classical Hawke’s Bay chardonnay with an intensity and complexity all its own. Resplendent in its detail, Estate Chardonnay ’21 layers all these elements into a long, sustained finish.

ABV: 14.0%
