Estate Syrah ’20 was harvested between 21 and 28 March 2020 from Te Mata Estate’s own vineyards in Hawke’s Bay’s Dartmoor, Bridge Pa Triangle and Gimblett Gravels sub-regions. 

Established in the early 1890s, Te Mata is New Zealand's oldest winery and, like Villa Maria and Babich, proudly family-owned. In the last thirty-odd years, Te Mata Estate have established themselves as a leading force in New Zealand wine, with John Buck's Te Mata Coleraine acknowledged globally as one of New Zealand's finest red wines, their Bullnose Syrah considered one of New Zealand's finest examples, and their Elston Chardonnay garnering huge acclaim.

While a family-operated winery, it is the team at Te Mata Estate that ensure this winery remains at the top of the game: you have Chairman John Buck's vast experience and guiding hand, Peter Cowley's exceptional winemaking skills, and Nicholas Buck’s drive and dedication to the expansion of a proud legacy. Three generations of the Buck family work here, and Te Mata Estate regularly work in the Bordeau and Burgundy to gain experience.

The remarkable consistency that Te Mata Estate has achieved for over thirty-five years is attributable to their control over every aspect of winemaking and, importantly, the longevity of their team. CEO Nicholas Buck explains: "All grapes are harvested exclusively from estate vineyards; we don't source fruit from any other region and our wines are made, matured and bottled on-premise. We have retained an excellent team that have worked together managing the vineyards and the winemaking, vintage after vintage."
