Winery description;

"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."

Cape Crest ’19 is a blend of 86% sauvignon blanc, 8% semillon and 6% sauvignon gris

A delicious European styled Sauvignon Blanc, stunning!

5 Stars, 100/100 - Sam Kim, Wine orbit

97/100 Cameron Douglas MS

Surely one for collectors, if you manage to get some.....

Midnight-dark ruby shimmers with a magenta edge. Coleraine ’19 is heralded by fragrant black roses, cherry, bramble, raspberry syrup and woodsmoke. A kiss of wild strawberry and dark chocolate transforms into a seductive palate laden with dark, ripe, forest berries. Majestic, velvet tannin entwines with the brightness and purity of classic Coleraine in a tale as old as time, creating captivating length and balance.

Te Mata (Hawkes Bay) 2019 Elston Chardonnay

94 Points - Cameron Douglas MS
"Fine creamy and fruit centric, a harmonious bouquet of fresh cream and vanilla, a finer gunflint moment showing off the mineral side of the wine, white smoke and tense toasty barrel moments. Dry, weighty, tense and alluring. Great texture with a core of fruit. Very youthful too with lots of acidity. A mix of fruit flavours with stone fruits and tree fruits, citrus with a whisper of pineapple. A lovely wine, very young. Best from 2022 through 2028+.

95 Points & 5 Stars - Sam Kim wineorbit.co.nz February 2021
"This is splendidly styled and composed, showing white fleshy peach, lemon peel, nougat and roasted cashew notes on the nose, followed by a finely styled palate delivering creamy mouthfeel and silky flow. It’s beautifully poised and harmonious with elegant complexity, making it immensely captivating and attractive. At its best: 2022 to 2032."

5 Stars - Michael Cooper NZ Listener February 2021
"This refined wine was grown on the hillsides above the winery at Havelock North, in the Bridge Pa Triangle and at Dartmoor. Weighty, with a fragrant, complex bouquet, it has deep, peachy, citrusy flavours gently seasoned with oak and a savoury, finely poised finish."

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.

Elston ’19 will continue to evolve in bottle for five years from harvest.

Zara is affectionately named after Zara Buck, the first born child of the third generation of Te Mata Estate’s Buck family. Zara spent her childhood playing amongst the vines at the vineyard which is home to this delightful viognier.

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.

Te Mata Estate (Hawkes Bay) 2019 Merlot Cabernets

The grapes for Estate Vineyards Merlot/Cabernets ’19 were harvested between 26 March and 11 April 2019 from Te Mata Estate’s own vineyards in the Bridge Pa Triangle, Dartmoor, Havelock Hills and Gimblett sub-regions of Hawke’s Bay. The individual parcels of each variety, from each plot, were de-stemmed before a traditional warm fermentation, followed by extended maceration on skins. The resulting wines were pressed, returned to tank for malolactic fermentation, then run off to a mixture of new and seasoned French oak barrels for nine months’ maturation before blending. The wines were regularly topped and racked, throughout maturation, blended and traditionally egg-white fined before bottling. The final blend is 44 % Merlot, 36 % Cabernet Sauvignon and 20 % Cabernet Franc.

Dark ruby with a bright purple edge, Estate Vineyards Merlot/Cabernets ’19 has ripe raspberry and blackberry on the nose and a palate that unfolds with Black Doris plum, cherry syrup, mint and cocoa-powder. Brambly, ripe, cabernet fruit sits atop soft, savoury tannins. Classically inviting, Estate Vineyards Merlot/Cabernets ’19 is complex and instantly-appealing at the same time.
