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.
Bright fresh lime in colour, Estate Vineyards Sauvignon Blanc 2020 is a tropical fruit-bowl of texture and complexity. Vibrant guava and vibrant passionfruit on the nose give way to gooseberry, coriander and aniseed on the palate – rich, complex botanicals that add alluring detail to this wine. Naturally-ripe acidity gives incredible length. Estate Vineyards Sauvignon Blanc 2020 is crisp, tropical, refreshing and simply stunning.
