Down on the farm
10 April 2018
While the winemakers have been busy in the winery with vintage, here at Chard Farm we have released the Mata-Au 2016 Pinot Noir at the cellar door and through our retailers.
The wine has enticing earthy aromas of floral dried herbs and dark spice, with intermingling red and blue fruits. There are elegant lines that deliver the pure red fruit flavours to the back of the palate. At the same time layers of fine tannin swell up to gently support and caress the palate as the wine finishes with a lovely mineral energy and drive.
A Pinot Noir blend of the Tiger and Viper vineyard, Mata-Au is very special to us here at Chard Farm as it is our signature blend that truly represents, John our winemaker's style. Complex yet light in body, this elegant Pinot Noir is an icon in itself is one to be enjoyed this Autumn, or can be put down if you have the patience?
