2021 Te Mata Estate Syrah

92 Points Richard Caro
In stock
A great little Syrah that is drawn from the excellent sources enjoyed by a true leader in Hawkes Bay winemaking, Te Mata Estate. These guys ensure that even their well known Estate range gets the full treatment, with all the fruit destemmed and matured for a year in French oak. A vibrant and satisfying red, this Te Mata Syrah is great value to drink now or hold a while.
$19.99 in mixed 6+ or $22.99 per bottle



Its Origins

Originally a farm with homestead established in 1854 by John Chambers, it was his son Bernard who, on return from travels in France, planted vineyards on its north facing hills - which are still in use. In 1919 the Chambers sold and the Te Mata Vineyards company was established, to continue until 1975 when two associates, John Buck and Michael Morris, ended their 8 year search for a winery location by purchasing on the historic Te Mata estate. By remaining firmly rooted in a kind of modern traditional approach - quality focussed wines made with long-term expertise and from estate-only vineyards - Te Mata Estate have risen and risen as New Zealand’s benchmark for cellaring quality. Depending on variety, both their middle and top end wines are consistently capable not only of balance and appeal on release, but of aging for multiple decades.

93/100 wine Orbit, Sam Kim (2015 vintage)

"This brilliantly priced syrah offers classic flavours of cherries and plums with subtle spice, almond and floral notes. The palate is succulent and silky, and displays lovely poise and purity, beautifully framed by fine tannins. An immediately appealing syrah offering gorgeous fragrance and supple mouthfeel. At its best: now to 2020. $20.00. www.temata.co.nz."
