Why do we love this wine?

This new chardy from Matahiwi has already won a brace of points and prizes. Not surprising, really. They’re in the habit of making consistently excellent wines. This comes from the southern plantings in their home vineyard, hence the ‘south series’ name.

The wine speaks of melon and stonefruit, with a lovely backing chorus of toasty oak for support. The palate unfolds to nectarine and lemon, with a touch of mango sweetness. More oak character appears with time, cedar and creamy vanillin. There’s even a spicy tang of ginger which is truly charming. It’s a serenely elegant wine, but with its own assured power and vitality. It’ll happily benefit from up to another five years in the cellar, and maybe even more. Thanks again, Matahiwi.
