2022 Te Mata Estate Elston Chardonnay

Early Hawkes Bay 2022 vintage Chardonnays have been impressive. Unsurprising when we tasted Te Mata’s Flagship Elston 2022… it’s unmissable cellar Chardonnay and maybe the GOAT.

Description

We'd argue Elston's exemplary track record dating back to 1984 makes it a frontrunner for NZ’s most consistent flagship Chardonnay. This 2022 is carrying a 97/100 Huon Hooke & 97/100 FWD Tasting Panel… could be the GOAT! Crafted with Mendoza clone fruit off the oldest estate Chardonnay vines and aged in the finest French oak barriques… it’s always going the be good… just a case of “How Good”? And this 2022 is “Dam good!” Laden with concentrated Hawkes Bay fruit infused with a complex, subtle array of nougat, hazelnut, baked pie and spices… New World meets the Old World (White Burgundy) in a seriously age worthy, enthralling, unmissable cellar Chardonnay.

Smells

Engaging and seductive aromas of warm lemon cream pie with brown baking spices and hazelnut against sun-ripened stone fruits giving way to figs and nougat.

Tastes

Pure, elegant fruit flavours, perfectly ripened peaches with lemon meringue pie, nougat, creamy hazelnut, baking spices and fresh figs… elegant limes helping the finish to stay long. It is the salivating, chalky texture that fires up your taste buds, maintaining a poise and elegance throughout the palate and finishing on a long, fine point that builds and builds. Well-structured, classical Chardonnay with great ageing potential, tuck a few bottles away until post 2029 to experience it at its zenith… you will be overly rewarded for your patience.
