Produced from 100% Mendoza clone and having undergone 100% malo-lactic, the 2016 Chardonnay Elston Hawkes Bay offers pretty white peach, apples and oatmeal notes with hints of toast and cashews. Elegant in the medium-bodied mouth with a good amount of oak nicely matched by fruit, the finish is long and uplifting.
Established in 1896, Te Mata Estate is one of the few New Zealand wineries with roots in the nineteenth century. They remain family-owned, proud of their inheritance and committed to the future.
Te Mata wines are produced exclusively from our Hawke’s Bay vineyards. Well-chosen sites and a generous climate underpin Hawke’s Bay’s quality reputation as a wine-growing region.
