The colour of Hawke’s Bay sunshine, it’s superbly fragrant on the nose with lemon, white peach, popcorn and fresh pineapple. The palate opens out to lemon curd, crème brûlée, toasted cashew with a slight touch of flint and smoke. The incredible 2017 chardonnay-fruit concentration, with vibrant and juicy acidity, gives a liveliness and lingering finish to this wine that just goes on and on. Estate Vineyards Chardonnay ’17 – refined and resplendent.

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.

The grapes for Estate Vineyards Chardonnay ’17 were harvested between 6 and 22 March 2017 from Te Mata Estate’s own vineyards in the Woodthorpe Terraces, Bridge Pa Triangle and Havelock Hills sub-regions of Hawke’s Bay.

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.

Chardonnay '17 - The wine is attractively fruited and beautifully fragrant with ripe stone, rock-melon, vanilla and hazelnut characters. The palate is succulent and expansive, displaying lovely mid palate weight and creamy mouthfeel, finishing ling and comforting. Wonderfully balanced and flavorsome, while remaining elegant and poised. At its best: now to 2020.' 91 points, 4.5 stars
