Estate Vineyards Chardonnay ’18 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 the remainder of the wine to enhance the complexity, richness and integration. Modern and traditional de-stemming and tank fermentation was used for a portion of the grapes to preserve the vibrant varietal aromas and clear, fresh fruit expression.

Te Mata Tasting Note
A brilliant yellow diamond with flickering green lights, Estate Vineyards Chardonnay ’18 has an immediate aroma of bright lemon blossom, ripe white peach and pineapple. Summer fruits unfurl with weight and texture alongside popcorn, roasted cashews, and a floral lemonade-and-tonic character that builds to a long, fine finish.
