Everyday price drop! It does not happen everyday but when it does we pass the savings on to our customers!
This is a beautifully balanced wine and a great example of a modern well made New Zealand Chardonnay. Made at Matahiwi Estate by Jane Cooper, the Mt Hector 2016 Chardonnay is a cracker. Well balanced, showing ripe nectarine and summer fruit flavours. The palate is creamy and well supported by a toasty oak finish. This one is a firm favourite amongst the chardonnay lovers in the office.

I have tasted some of Matahiwi's other labels and enjoyed them immensely. Their Mt Hector label is the Retail label and the quality doesn't decrease, this Chardy has pleasant fruity flavours with very subtle oak after taste. Very well priced and enjoyable as a daily quaffer with some nice cheese or chicken and pasta dishes. If you like Chardonnay then this one will tick a few boxes for you however other labels at $25 plus will of course deliver different qualities.

I liked this chardonnay and although not particularly remarkable it had all the attributes you normally associate with this variety and it's not over-oaked so most will enjoy.

I ordered at the weekend, they were delivered on Tuesday. Good service, good cheerful & polite courier. But .... I am not a believer in chilling a Chardonnay. But sorry, Mt Hector, your 2014 vintage doesn't pass the test, unchilled. It's harsh, doesn't give the fruity promise I expected. Not that I am looking for that in a Chardonnay, it's not Pinot Gris or Sav Blanc. I do like that the oaking is pleasantly subtle. But what happened to the creamy effect. Disappointing, I am going to have to chill to drink the other 11 bottles, not what I want for the coming winter months. Wednesday, next day, my rating remains unchanged. But 24 hours later, you need to treat this wine like a red and give it time to breathe, minimum 3 hours, the longer the better. 24 hours later it still lacks the fruity promise, the harshness has mellowed considerably, not vanished, and creamy effect is there, just. And at $10 per bottle per box, it is probably a reasonable buy. But overall I am still disappointed, but I do admit I was looking for a silk purse at a sows ear price.

87 Points Sam Kim - Wine Orbit
“This friendly chardonnay offers attractive stone fruit and citrus flavours with subtle vanilla complexity. It is ripe and smooth on the palate with appealing juicy flavours and creamy texture, finishing succulent and lingering. A lovely elegant style showing tasty fruit flavours with a gentle oak infusion. Certified organic.”- Sam Kim

100% Certified Organic Wine. A judicious blend of both barrel and tank ferments. This wine “walks the line” between modern Burgundy and Chablis offering ripe white peach and apple aromas combined with the complexity of barrel fermentation in French oak and extended lees contact. Generous yet finely balanced with mineral acidity adding length and focus on the palate.
