Te Mata is the oldest legal winery in New Zealand and since 1896 have been making wine off of these precious sites and they own some of the oldest in the game. This wine is drawn from two such estate vineyards.
The first is from the now renown Bridge Pa Triangle which kicked off a land grab in the mid 90s. The whites grown here are known for their consistent quality, delicacy, and intricate aromatics. The second vineyard is from the original plantings immediately surrounding the winery, in the Havelock Hills – some over 120 years old and known for the immense power they are capable of producing.
The balance of the two is outstanding and their estate bottlings have garnered just about the highest praise you can imagine. Jancis Robinson called the estate ‘a national treasure’ while Robert Parker simply deemed it “New Zealand’s greatest winery.” And Decanter called it “New Zealand’s first growth.”
