This delicious blend of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Malbec is softly concentrated with deep and dense aromas of plush red fruits, blackcurrants,cocoa, spice and cedar aromas. Each variety contributes to an exquisitely varied array of aroma and great depth of flavours. The palate is medium-full bodied with layer of rich and succulent fruit and charry oak flavour. The long finish and fine tannins make this an ideal accompaniment for your beef dishes, richly flavoured foods and cheeses.
Time in bottle will yield further depth of flavour and a wonderful melding of fruit, oak, texture and moreish spice.
The Jewelstone Syrah has a floral spicy nose with very sweet ripe fruit elements. The palate has good fruit intensity, sweet tannins and a wonderful freshness in the mouth. The tannins dissolve leaving a lovely perfumed and savoury aftertaste on the finish.
This is a quality single vineyard Gimblett Gravels Syrah from an excellent red wine vintage and a winemaking team at the top of their game. A very modern style with solid fruit weight framed in a rather elegant style. Excellent wine.
This is a rich style of Chardonnay with the accent on strong fruit flavours. Ripe melon, nectarine and summer peach aromas abound with oak hints of cedar and spice and a long, full, yet soft finish. ideal matched with creamy pasta and white meat dishes. It is also delicious with seafood.
"Sourced from a low yielding vineyard in Hawke’s Bay, this Chardonnay has lovely nectarine and melon fruit with a subtle spicy oak nose. Ripe citrus with a nutty creaminess and a toasty oak finish." Awarded 91pts from Wine Orbit – Sam Kim
Saturated, dark crimson, Alma Pinot Noir ’19 has an enticing nose of pomegranate, raspberry and black cherry syrup. Mineral and savoury notes – orange peel, peppercorns and sage – all glide across a serene surface of dark, fine tannin and lush ripe fruit. Alma Pinot Noir ’19 is structural. This is a wine of scope and horizons. Its depths are balanced by a lingering fruit acid tension that gives the wine a balletic level of poise, energy and grace.
“An iconic brand meets a terrific vintage. The result is a “must have” wine for collectors and investors. This is elegance on a grand scale and one of the best vintages I’ve tasted. Still youthful and quite closed (it was bottled on the day I tasted it) but with plushness and power.” -- Bob Campbell MW, Business Desk, February 2021
A brilliant white-gold in the glass, Elston Chardonnay ’19 has the immediate aroma of fresh golden nectarines, passionfruit and grilled pineapple. Lush, ripe acid drives the wine's length and balance, bringing the mouthfeel from ripe sweet lemon and white peach, to crème brûlée, roasted cashew, popcorn, to mineral tones and flint. As complex fruit becomes savoury in the long finish, the liveliness of Elston Chardonnay ’19 gives way to elegance. This is an Elston for the ages.
Awatea, even though being the so called second wine after the Coleraine, is still a wonderful Bordeaux blend that is able to age beautifully for up to 10 years. It always shows ripe blackberry and blackcurrant aromatics with elements of vanilla creme and sandalwood. On the palate there’s a banquet of plum, raspberry, dried herbs and lingering dark cherry, set out across cedar and cocoa powder tannins. Classical in structure, with fine balance and length.
The soft citrine of Zara Viognier ’19 belies its intensely aromatic nature. Floral and fruit notes of orange blossom, apricot, rose and peach, blend with complexing hints of fennel, cashew and barrel char. The luscious palate delivers a finely balanced acidity that extends the wine all the way through its long, salivating, saline finish. Highly refined in both interest and complexity, Zara Viognier ’19 is unashamedly delicious.
Syrah has been another classic for Te Mata Estate pretty much established with the idea to make stunning perfumed and peppery Syrah, the style you will find in the Northern Rhone. Lush with plum and boysenberry, the palate has immense depth and is interwoven with black liquorice, spice and velvety chocolate tannins. This of course is still very young and will develop further for 8 to 10 years developing a peppery, black olive and beautifully balanced Syrah.
Diamond-clear with lime green highlights, Cape Crest Sauvignon Blanc ’19 gives ripe tropical fruit, complexity and length for days. Aromas of yuzu, guava, kaffir lime and luscious white nectarine give way to palate of passionfruit, grapefruit, gooseberry, pear and crushed herbs, with just hint of sea-salt and smoke at the end of the long dry finish. A wine with great ageing potential as well as concentrated fruit, walking a long green tightrope between elegant and refreshing.
