Description

Established in 1896, Te Mata Estate is one of the few New Zealand wineries with roots in the nineteenth century.  The estate remains family owned, producing internationally recognized wines exclusively from its Hawke’s Bay vineyards. Well-chosen sites and a generous climate underpin Hawke’s Bay’s quality reputation as a wine-growing region. Large enough to be well-resourced but small enough to concentrate on detail, Te Mata produce eleven wines from classical vineyard areas; with their complexity, structure and balance these wines reward careful cellaring through continued evolution in bottle.

Midnight-dark with a deep crimson edge, Alma 2018 is a triumph of aromatic wild strawberry, black cherry, currants, marzipan, sage and sandalwood. The palate’s ripe, sustained, structure reveals a parade of spice and brooding, soft, dark, berry fruits and rich savoury tannins – set to unfurl with time. Cherry, black plum, cinnamon and smoke, all glide across a palate which is wonderfully deep-set. Finely-dressed for its debut, the premiere release of Alma 2018 is modern, majestic, and enchanting in its detail.
