Domaine Naturaliste & Matakana Estate

Saturday, March 16th 1-4pm

 

This Saturday we'll be showing some great value wines from our friend Eric Platt of Artisans & Vines. Matakana Estate is located about an hour north of Auckland on New Zealand's North Island, and is turning out some great value wines with fruit from their home region and further afield. Domaine Naturaliste in the Margaret River region of Western Australia, specializing in WA classics chardonnay and cabernet sauvignon.

Matakana Estate Pinot Gris Matakana 2017

Sale $11.99   |   SKU 76063

 

Domaine Naturaliste Chardonnay Discovery Margaret River 2016

"A long and gentle vintage weather pattern, slightly cooler than the long-term average. The fruit gained lovely perfumes and textures while maintaining a magnificent verve. Pristine Chardonnay fruit and respectful winemaking. Fermentation and maturation in mainly seasoned French oak (only 5% new), adds complexity and generosity of texture without comprising the purity of the aromatics or flavour." - Winery notes

Matakana Estate Pinot Noir Marlborough 2017

It's hard to find pinot noir to get excited about in the sub-$20 range, but Matakana covers all the bases at a real bargain price. Floral aromas, bright cherry fruit and a velvety finish.

 

Sale $13.99   |   SKU 77362

 

Domaine Naturaliste Cabernet Sauvignon Rebus Margaret River 2015

"An intricate tapestry of glazed cherries, violets and graphite, deftly woven into a palate laden with flavours of red currants, cacao nib and plum skin. Bristling tannin on the entry and a tensile core of licorice, black berries and slate, culminates in a persistent and ever-changing mineral finish." - Winery notes
