TEMAAWATEA17

Te Mata Awatea Cabernets/Merlot 2017

Hawke's Bay, New Zealand
  • The little bro of the iconic Coleraine
  • But compared with it's big brother, Awatea is a positive bargin at half the price and is an experience to remember.
  • The 2017 vintage gave the Awatea intense powerful characters with a persistance tannin structure to give it life after the recommended cellaring time of 8-10 years. This intense claret experience welcomes you in with concentrated plums, blackcurrants, and blackberries. After which the warm reception extends into fine tannins with characters of chocolate, baked cedar, a savoury liquorice.
Awatea is crafted using the same palette as Te Mata’s iconic flagship –Coleraine. Just like it’s big bro, Awatea is designed as a ‘Bordeaux blend’, using a mix of Cabernet Sauv, Merlot, Cab Franc, & Petit Verdot. Effectively the talented team at Te Mata they have created a Coleraine experience that’s a lot kinder on your wallet. As with Te Mata’s other premium wines the picture on label gives a clue to origin of the wines name. Indeed Awatea was named after the 1930’s ship ‘SS Awatea’ meaning Eye of the Dawn.
The team behind the SS Awatea were awarded several medals for there service on such a vessel of high standard of luxury that just kept on going during wartime. Just like the her it's namesake Awatea the wine will award you with luxury and longevity. So don't worry you have plenty of time to enjoy this baby Coleraine, cellaring for approximately 10 years but when you do pop the cork (yes you need a corkscrew) you will experience a classic Hawke’s Bay red with bundles of flavour.

Kumeu River Estate Chardonnay 2017

Kumeu River Estate Chardonnay 2017

Kumeu, New Zealand
  • Outstanding value for a 5 star Chardonnay
  • The ‘Estate Chardonnay’ incorporates the best parcels of grapes from each of Kumeu River’s 6 vineyards around its hometown – Pure Kumeu.
  • The 2015 Estate delivers a good dosing of peaches mixed together almond, apricot, and pineapple characters to start with. Flinty minerals and oak spice characters are mixed in with this westie’s creamy texture. However the Estate Chardonnay real power comes from its time defying finish giving all the wine’s flavours some serious hang time in your mouth – Yum!
