Te Mata Tasting Note
Crystal-pale gold highlights, Estate Chardonnay ’23 immediately presents the aroma of white nectarines and white peaches, alongside notes of lychee, ripe citrus, creamy nougat and delicate spice. The ripe and dry mid-palate is full and rich, with just a touch of ripe pear and ‘marmalade on toast’. This plushness and concentration in Estate Chardonnay 2023 rolls to a whisper finish that’s clean, saline, fresh and fine-boned. Estate Chardonnay ’23 is a display of balance between weight and detail.

Estate Chardonnay '23

Estate Chardonnay ’23 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.


Woodthorpe Terraces

The grapes for Estate Chardonnay ’22 were harvested between 22 February and
20 March 2023 from Te Mata Estate’s own vineyards in the Woodthorpe Terraces,
Bridge Pa Triangle and Havelock Hills sub-regions of Hawke’s Bay.
