The unique ‘maceration carbonique’ fermentation, which enhances the fruit and floral aromas of the wine, was used for 55% of the grapes. The other 45% received a traditional, warm, red wine fermentation. The resulting wines completed their malolactic fermentation and were matured for nine weeks in seasoned French oak barrels, before blending and bottling.
2016 Estate Gamay Noir
Te Mata Tasting Note
Candy-apple crimson with a lifted confectionery nose of wild strawberries, Estate Vineyards Gamay Noir ’16 shows ripe, juicy cherry and cranberry on the palate, with just a hint of cinnamon and liquorice. As picnic-perfect as berries and cream, Estate Vineyards Gamay Noir ’16 is soft and supple, with a lingering finish of bright, fresh red fruit.

Estate Gamay Noir '16
In 1995, Te Mata Estate introduced to New Zealand a superior selection of Gamay Noir à Jus Blanc, the grape variety of the best wines of France’s Beaujolais region. Estate Vineyards Gamay Noir ’16 is a single vineyard wine from Te Mata Estate’s Woodthorpe Terraces vineyard, harvested on 29 and 30 March 2016.
All Te Mata Estate wines are grown in the same vineyards, made by the same people, and are all bottled onsite at the winery established in 1896. Estate wines are varietally-driven, representing the finest expression of Te Mata’s Hawke’s Bay vineyard sites.
