Te Mata Estate Chardonnay 2021

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.

Estate Chardonnay ’21 is delicious on its own, or a wonderful partner for both simply prepared and fuller flavoured seafood, and white meat dishes.

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

Havelock Hills, Bridge Pa and Woodthorpe Terraces, Hawke's Bay. 14% abv.
