Estate Vineyards Chardonnay ’11 combines the best of traditional and modern winemaking. Traditional whole-bunch pressing, barrel fermentation and malolactic fermentation were used on a portion of the wine to enhance the complexity, richness and integration. Modern de-stemming and tank fermentation was used for the remainder of the grapes to preserve the vibrant varietal aromas and clear, fresh fruit expression. The resulting wines were matured for ten months before being blended, fined and bottled.

Te Mata Tasting Note
Estate Vineyards Chardonnay ’11 has a bright straw colour with golden lights, and lovely aromas of ripest white peach, sweet lemon, grilled nuts and toast. The palate is pure, focussed and fine, showing pear juice and nougat flavours, with a creamy texture and refreshing acidity contributing to a long finish.
