Chardonnay, Maté’s Vineyard, Kumeu – 2012

This is the 20th vintage of the Mate’s Vineyard Chardonnay produced from the low-yielding Mendoza clone. The clone’s vine age and distinctive characteristics contribute to the wine’s uniqueness. This vineyard has always displayed a lifted fruit aroma reminiscent of ripe pears, but with a mineral edge. The palate is always long and concentrated. The 2012 vintage is a wine that shows the complexity and concentration expected from this vineyard with great tautness and length on the palate.
