Description:
The grapes for Awatea 09 were hand harvested from Te Mata Estate's vineyards between 19 March and 14 April 2009. The separate parcels of grapes were destemmed before a traditional warm, plunged fermentation and extended maceration on skins. The resulting wines were then run to new and seasoned French oak barrels for 18 months ageing. Throughout this time they were regularly topped and racked. The separate wines were blended in January 2010, then returned to barrel for their second winter. The finished wine was then egg white fined and bottled in November 2010.

Awatea 09 has a dark crimson colour with lifted floral, ripe blackberry cedar and spice aromas. The palate is laden with rich dark cherry, chocolate and Provence herb flavours, with a fine, persistant tannin finish.

Te Mata Estate believes this to be the finest Awatea it has produced to date.

It will continue to evolve in bottle, providing great enjoyment up to 10 years from harvest.

It is a natural partner for savoury red meat dishes and hard cheeses.

45% cabernet sauvignon, 40% merlot, 15% cabernet franc.

Producer Information

Established in 1896, Te Mata Estate remains family owned, producing internationally recognised wines exclusively from its Hawkes Bay vineyards.

Under the direction of John Buck, Te Mata Estate has, over nearly thirty years, produced a stunning array of red and white wines including famous labels such as Coleraine, Awatea Cabernets/Merlots, Bullnose Syrah, Elston Chardonnay, Cape Crest Sauvignon Blanc and, launched in 2009, Zara Viognier.

In 2012 Te Mata Estate launched Estate Vineyards - a collection of five varietally designated wines; merlot/cabernet, syrah, gamay noir, chardonnay and sauvignon blanc. Collectively labelled as Estate Vineyards, these wines are sourced exclusively from Te Mata Estate’s own vineyards and blended to represent the best qualities of their variety, vintage, and Hawke’s Bay origin.

Classically Te Mata Estate, these wines display fresh and intense varietal characters with hallmark finesse and winemaking elegance. Te Mata Estate’s commitment to quality is apparent in these expressive and approachable wines, which can be appreciated immediately upon release.
