#2 James Suckling's Top 100 New Zealand Wines of 2022

#13 James Suckling's Top 100 Wines of 2022

Lots of minerality with crushed stone, chalk, white grapefruit, peach stones, white apricots, wild herbs and lavender. Touch of cedar. Evolves to nutmeg and crushed almonds. Wow. It really builds on the palate, leading to a crescendo and intensity that blows your mind. Compact and phenolic, yet so agile and refined. Goes on for minutes. Drink or hold. Screw cap.- James Suckling

The 2021 Chardonnay Maté's Vineyard offers greater tension and sapidity compared with how the more relaxed 2020 did upon release. It w need time in bottle to shoke off the rawness of youth. It is focused, concentrated and precise. There's sophisticated use of ook, which intearates seamlessly within the package. I got a cold the day after this was first opened, and almost a week later, when my senses returned, it remained impeccable, focused and compact. Rebecca Gibb MW, Vinous Media
