Winery notes (2014 Vintage)
"Our Mata-Au vineyards are located in the Lowburn and Parkburn areas of the Cromwell basin. The vineyards are planted on the terraces and alluvial schist based soils formed by the Mata-Au (Clutha) River (pronounced – martar-o). The unique combination of site, soil and mild continental climate produces perfumed wines with elegant texture, structure and mineral length. The 2014 vintage is the fifth Mata-Au wine we have produced. We consider it to be our signature wine, and as such it was not produced in 2011 because we deemed the vintage to not be of the required standard. It is made from the best blocks in our best vineyards in the Lowburn/Parkburn sub-region. Mata-Au showcases the succulent red fruits and silky tannins that are the hallmarks of this sub-region, delivered in our elegant, textural and length driven style. The floral and spicy perfume overlays strong red berry fruits and dried herbs. The complex red fruit, spice and herbal tones are perfectly balanced by a silky tannin structure and clear acid; detailing lovely precision, tension and length on the finish."
5 Stars & 93/100 Sam Kim, Wine Orbit (2014 Vintage)
"Their signature pinot, grapes were grown on estate vineyards in Lowburn and Parkburn areas. The wine captures pinot elegance with savoury complexity, displaying red/black cherry, game, clove and thyme characters with a hint of cedar on the nose. The palate is finely texture and beautifully weighted, and delivers excellent mid palate focus and rounded mouthfeel, wonderfully structured by fine, delicately drying tannins. At its best: now to 2021."
4 Stars Michael Cooper (2014 Vintage)
"Pronounced 'Martar-O', Chard Farm's 'signature' red is estate-grown at Lowburn, in the Cromwell Basin. Bright ruby, the 2014 vintage is sweet-fruited and supple, with vibrant, delicate strawberry, plum, spice and nut flavours, in a 'feminine', finely balanced style, well worth cellaring."
