Te Mata Elston Chardonnay 2016

Te Mata Elston Chardonnay 2016

Vinification

Each parcel was gently whole-cluster pressed, cold settled and racked to new and seasoned French oak barrels for fermentation. The resulting wines remained in contact with their yeast lees while undergoing malolactic fermentation. 

Maturation

The finest lots were selected for further maturation, spending a total of 11 months in barrel.

Appearance

Resplendent white-gold.

Aroma

Shows immediate notes of lemon oil, white peach and concentrated, ripe nectarine. The aromas of citrus blossom and clover honey sparkle over a luxurious palate of grapefruit, toast and lemon nougat.

Palate

Fine, gorgeous and intense. Chardonnay royalty with focus, energy and oodles of its signature, moreish character.

Vintage Notes

The superb quality of the 2016 vintage was immediately apparent in the fully ripe grapes that were hand-harvested from their separate, individual plots within Te Mata Estate’s vineyards between 17 and 26 March 2016.

Cellaring Potential

The Elston will continue to evolve in bottle for five years from harvest.
