Tasting Notes 2007

Woodthorpe Chardonnay ‘07 has a bright straw/green colour and aromas of white stone fruit and citrus blossom. The lemon and peachy fruit flavours have underlying cream and biscuit notes from the barrel fermentation. The freshness, concentration and elegance of this wine promise cellaring benefits for 2-4 years from harvest.

Woodthorpe Chardonnay ‘07 is delicious on its own, or a wonderful partner for both simply prepared and fuller flavoured seafood, and white meat dishes.

Technical Analysis

pH: 3.29
Total acidity as tartaric: 6.45g/l
Alcohol: 13.5%
Residual sugar: Dry


A portion of the grapes were whole cluster pressed, with the fine, clear juice being run off to 225 litre French oak barrels for primary and malolactic fermentations. The remaining grapes were lightly crushed and destemmed before a cool tank fermentation to retain varietal aromas and flavours. The resulting wines were further matured, with the barrel fermented portion spending eight months on lees with regular stirring throughout this time. The component wines were then blended, fined and bottled.


2007 was another very high quality vintage for Te Mata Estate, following the excellent pattern established since 2004. Fully ripe chardonnay grapes were harvested from the Woodthorpe vineyard between 9 and 14 March 2007.


Sourced exclusively from Te Mata Estate’s own vineyards, the estate vineyards wines are blended to represent the best qualities of their variety, vintage, and Hawke’s Bay origin.
