Chardonnay, Maté’s Vineyard, Kumeu
Really seductive nose of candied lemons, honeysuckle and vanilla, then stunning concentration and elegance on the medium to full palate, the finish very ripe and polished. Delicious now, but with a great future ahead of it. Screw cap.
"This is an expression of many important things: old vines, family heritage, Mendoza clone and proven cellaring pedigree. It smells of white peaches with attractive hazelnutty oak (30% new), lemon peel and flinty elements. The palate delivers a powerful combination of complexity and refinement. This wine is succulently fine, unashamedly ripe and enticingly taut. The masterpiece. Drink now."
