Te Mata Tasting Note
A captivating rose-red and crimson in the glass, Alma ’21 is immediately floral, with notes of lavender, peonies, wild strawberries, and ripe, red cherries. Woodsmoke, spice and incense meld into forest berries and rich black plums on a long, savoury palate hanging on precise, concentrated, super-fine tannins. A wine of persistence, that overflows with appeal, Alma Pinot Noir ’21 is immediately enjoyable and endless in its enchantment.

Alma '21

The individual lots were each destemmed and given a traditional warm-plunged
fermentation. The resulting wines underwent extended maceration on skins before
pressing. The separate wines were then run to a mixture of new and seasoned French oak barriques for 10 months’ maturation.


Woodthorpe Terraces

Separate parcels of fully ripened pinot noir grapes were hand-harvested from Te Mata Estate’s Woodthorpe Vineyards between 15 and 23 February 2021.



Alma celebrates Dr James Thomson, a hero of the 1854 Battle of the Alma during the Crimean War and forefather to Te Mata Estate’s Buck family. Knowing the vanquished enemy soldiers had already contracted cholera, Dr Thomson volunteered to tend to their wounds, saving the lives of over four hundred, and sacrificing his own in the process. The medal he was awarded for this selfless act of valour appears on the label of Alma Pinot Noir.
