      Alma Pinot Noir, Hawke’s Bay — 2020

      Wine Enthusiast
      92 Points

      "2020 is proving a rich vintage, with many wines poised for the long haul. Alma is a great example of this. With time in glass, it reveals a prism of aromas and flavors: baked plum, blueberry, mocha, licorice and baking spice. The palate is on the fuller end of the Pinot spectrum, with powerful but fine tannins, but with supple, juicy fruit and a polish that suggests its best is yet to come."

      Estate Pinot Noir, Hawke’s Bay — 2020

      Wine Enthusiast

      "There're elegant aromas of cherry and blueberry fruit, violets and roses, ground black pepper, cloves and a slight meatiness in a well-tucked bed of mocha oak. Tangy red fruit on the silky palate is tightly wound by fine tannins and lifted by a crunch of acidity. A unique Pinot that bears the Te Mata stamp of place, polish, freshness and structure."

      Estate Syrah, Hawke’s Bay — 2020

      Wine Enthusiast
      95 Points

      "This historic Hawke’s Bay estate once again delivers a delicious and exceptionally well-priced bottling. This ruby red Syrah sings with vibrant plum and berry fruit, cracked black pepper, graphite, dried florals and chocolate mint. Aromas flow seamlessly onto the palate, which threads finely structured tannins through the juicy fruit, herbs and spice, emerging out the other side to form a complete wine that is both serious and playful, food-friendly and highly drinkable."

      Elston Chardonnay, Hawke’s Bay — 2020

      Wine Enthusiast
      93 Points

      “A strong vintage for Te Mata and the Hawke's Bay region in general, this release of Elston strikes a fine balance between fruit ripeness, freshness and oak. Lemon and pineapple aromas are vibrant above seashell and creamy oak nuances. The palate shows lovely slippery texture, crystalline acidity and concentrated fruit. It's supported, not dominated, by the wood. A persistent citrus finish makes it easy to take another sip.”
