A bundle of our best. The Terroir wines are our reserve range and made only in the best years, made with care and in select small parcels. This pack includes 1x Chardonnay, 1x Syrah and 1x Late Harvest Pinot Gris.
Matakana Estate Terroir Chardonnay 2017; a fine, classic Chardonnay in the Burgundian style, with toasty oak and melon notes on the nose. Cream and full-bodied in the mouth, with characters of nut and fig. This is a complex and concentrated wine with good acidity and terrific length.
Matakana Estate Terroir Syrah 2015; stunning ruby read colour with a beautiful bouquet of dark berries and red plums. This wine is well balanced, with cherry and raspberry fruit and white pepper and leather nuances. The tannins are fine but firm, with subtle oak characteristics and great length.
Matakana Estate Late Harvest Pinot Gris 2021; the 2021 vintage allowed us to leave a small block of our Pinot Gris to raisin slightly, producing grapes with a very high sugar content. Thus producing a wine that is not technically a dessert wine, but more akin to a Vin Santo in style, showing strong pear and apple flavours matched with an underlying dried fruit character. The palate is sweet and the finish is balanced by good acidity. The perfect pairing to a cheese board.
