Expert Reviews

Huon Hooke

94 Points

Smoky, nutty bouquet, nougat, lots of almond meal and toasted nuttiness. Barrel ferment to the max. Almost a Te Koko style. Rich, full-bodied and concentrated. A very good but perhaps a one-glass wine.

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

Te Mata Estate is New Zealand’s oldest winery, dating from the early 1890s. It is a New Zealand family-owned winery – a true estate, specialising in grape growing and winemaking from its nine Hawke’s Bay vineyards. It is acknowledged as one of only five icon wineries in New Zealand.

Under the direction of John Buck, Te Mata Estate has, over nearly thirty years, produced a stunning array of red and white wines including famous labels such as Coleraine, Awatea cabernets/merlots, Bullnose syrah, Elston chardonnay, Cape Crest sauvignon blanc and, launched in 2009, Zara viognier. Te Mata Estate has also developed a unique single vineyard from which it produces its Woodthorpe wines.

Te Mata Estate makes wines from hand-harvested grapes from its own vineyards. These vineyards are all located in Hawkes Bay (within 40 minutes drive of the winery) and under the direct control of Te Mata Estate’s viticultural team.

Total land area: 600 acres (240 hectares). Total planted vineyard area: 300 acres (120 hectares).

Michael Cooper

This barrel-fermented savvy is weightier and more complex, with slightly softer acidity, than the standard Marlborough model. The bouquet is fragrant and ripely herbal, and the palate is full-bodied and sweet-fruited, with a strong surge of passionfruit/lime flavours and a subtle seasoning of oak. It has loads of current-drinking appeal.
