Why We Love This Wine

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. Expressing precision & poise, this wine evinces perfumed aromas of raspberry & red cherry fruit along with florals, warm spice, & spicy oak nuances. On the palate, it is dry, tense, focused, & youthful delivering delectably juicy fruit flavors, a soothing mouthfeel, & underlying savory characters framed by fine chalky tannins culminating in a gorgeously long & seductive finish.

Winemaker / Tasting Notes

Bright burgundy with a purple edge, the Estate Vineyards Pinot Noir 2019 has immediately emergent aromas of ripe strawberry, raspberry, lavender, & nutmeg. Hints of vanilla & smoke float across the palate that is dominated by soft red fruit & fine silky tannins.
