Winemaker Notes

Deep, brilliant crimson with a cherry-red edge, Estate Vineyards Gamay Noir ’18 sparkles with lifted candy-apple, strawberry and star anise on the nose. Soft and luscious, the palate overflows with crushed red summer fruit, wild raspberry and cherry. Hints of rosewater and aniseed culminate in this wine’s sumptuous finish. Refreshing in its appeal, beguiling in its detail, Estate Vineyards Gamay Noir ’18 is New Zealand Gamay Noir par excellence – the result of an incredible vintage, this is the best Te Mata has made.

Wine Enthusiast

If this historic estate’s Gamay is anything to go by, New Zealand should be planting more of the stuff. A vibrant crimson color, it’s a perky medley of cherries, blueberries and strawberries woven with licorice, baking spice and florals, with earthy, mineral base notes. In the mouth the crisp acidity gives a crunch to all that fruit. The silky texture is held together with gentle yet structured and spicy tannins. Light bodied and harmonious, with the oak tucked neatly away, this is an ultradrinkable, chillable red wine to be cracked open young. 

RP 90
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
A blend of fruit from the Woodthorpe Vineyard and Dartmoor Valley, the 2018 Estate Vineyards Gamay Noir shows a return to form for this producer's Gamay. Made with 50% whole clusters and aged only three months in older oak, it's bursting with ripe raspberries and cherries. There's a slightly sappy, savory element from the stems in this medium-bodied charmer, which finishes juicy and fresh. Fun, quaffable and pleasure-giving, it should be enjoyed over the next couple of years.

Te Mata Estate, New Zealand
Te Mata Estate Winery Video

Te Mata Estate Winery originated as part of Te Mata Station, a large pastoral land holding established by English immigrant John Chambers in 1854. His third son, Bernard, influenced by the comments from visitors that the hills were suitable for grape growing, planted vines in 1892. Wine was made from those grapes in 1896, establishing Te Mata Estate as the first winery in New Zealand to make a century.
