Matua have been on a bit of an awards binge of late, winning more awards in the last 12 months than in the past 7 years. This Chardonnay is a very good effort for the Hawkes Bay in 2012, with sensitive winemaker influence and good vineyard work seeing them create a full-bodied and rich Chardonnay in a tricky vintage.
- Hazelnuts, vanilla, apple and white peach.
- Creamy yet fresh and focused, this wine has nice almond meal complexity mingling with peachy acid through to a long nutty finish.
- Enjoy between now and 2016.
