Who wouldn't have Elston on their list of New Zealand's very best Chardonnays?
With a pedigree dating back to 1984, Elston unquestionably sits alongside illustrious company as one of this country's outstanding examples of Chardonnay.
Grown at Te Mata's oldest vineyards on the hillsides above the winery, the 2011 has a brilliant, green gold colour, and lovely aromas of nectarine and white peach, with a background of oatmeal and cedar. It is elegant and intense, with a mineral tension in the palate that suggests considerable cellaring potential. In recent years demand for Elston has outstripped supply particularly in the months prior to the next vintage release. To guarantee year round enjoyment, think about cellaring Elston. This vintage will easily improve and age successfully for 5 years.
