Te Mata Estate Chardonnay 2016

$24.00 $21.60

Estate Vineyards Chardonnay ’15 has the aromas of white meadow flowers, French vanilla and floral, juicy Hawke’s Bay peaches. Bright light gold, the palate unfurls with a balance of rock melon, sweet lemon, candied lime and complexing notes of biscuit, stone fruit and grilled nuts. A pure chardonnay with lovely length and a crisp clean finish. Estate Vineyards Chardonnay ’15 is delicious own its own, or a wonderful partner for both simply prepared and fuller flavoured seafood, and white meat dishes. Estate Vineyards Chardonnay ’15 will continue to evolve in bottle for two to four years from harvest.

The grapes for Estate Vineyards Chardonnay ’15 were harvested between 13 and 27 March 2015 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 ’15 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.
