Established in 1896, Te Mata Estate is one of the few New Zealand Wineries with roots in the 19th century remaining family owned, retaining pride in their heritage, & staying true to their commitment to the future. They produce 11 wines from classic vineyard areas in Hawke's Bay blessed with a generous climate & a quality reputation. With their complexity, structure, & balance, these wines reward careful cellaring through continued evolution in the bottle. Te Mata Estate has been at the forefront of the modern rejuvenation of the New Zealand wine scene over the last 40 years being large enough to be well resourced but small enough to concentrate on detail. Deep magenta in color, this red blend overflows with fresh red berries, dark cherries, blueberry, and ripe Hawke's Bay plum aromas. Savory bay leaf with fine toast & spice notes from the oak give this wine great presence, varietal personality, & complexity on the palate. Appealing, approachable, & just a touch Aristocratic, this red blend continues to over deliver on flavor, intricacy, & finesse.
A beautifully fruity, pristine, & elegant Cabernet Sauvignon & Merlot Blend. It offers a succulent, supple, & well-rounded palate with delectable intensity.
