Te Mata Estate Gamay Noir 2021

$28.00

Winemakers tasting note – “Candy-apple red and edged in royal purple, Estate Gamay Noir ’21 is bursting with raspberry, Turkish delight, blueberry, wild strawberry, and ripe, black cherry. Its super floral, red-fruit presence is balanced by subtle notes of smoke, liquorice, sandalwood, and cinnamon. A gorgeous line of bright acidity runs the length of the wine, giving incredible freshness and persistence. A supreme example, Estate Gamay Noir ’21 captivates and refreshes at the same time. Silky, stylish, and simply stunning.”

More Information

Te Mata Estate was originally part of Te Mata Station, a large pastoral land-holding established by English immigrant, John Chambers, in 1854. A homestead and stables were built on the property in the early 1870’s.

After returning from France, John Chamber’s third son, Bernard, had the idea to plant vineyards on the north-facing hills around Havelock North. In 1892, Bernard Chambers planted vines on three parcels of hillside land above the homestead and began converting the original stables to ferment and mature these first Te Mata Estate Wines. Today, Te Mata Estate still uses those same three vineyards.

The Chambers family sold the property in 1919. Te Mata Vineyards (TMV) was established and the property had two other owners until it was acquired by the Buck and Morris families in 1974 – the two families behind the modern interpretation of this historic New Zealand estate.

Te Mata Estate remains family owned, producing internationally recognised wines exclusively from its Hawke’s Bay vineyards.
