Gold Medal – New Zealand International Wine Show 2023


The Matawhero journey started with two New Zealand wine pioneers from the 1960s, Bill and son Denis Irwin. Today the story continues around the drive and determination of Kirsten and Richard Searle, who have continued to develop the iconic winery and share the distinctive wine styles of the Gisborne region.

This is from two of Gisborne's iconic vineyards – Briant and Tietjen and has all the richness and fullsomeness that Gisborne Chardonnay can deliver.


Winery notes (2022 Vintage)
"The grapes for this elegant Gisborne Chardonnay are grown from two select parcels from the Briant and Tietjen vineyards. Lovely golden colour in the glass. Ripe peach and melon layered with butterscotch and toasty oak notes. The palate is big, rich and full with great length and weight."


5 Stars & 94/100 Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, July 2023 (2022 Vintage)
"This is gorgeously expressed on the nose showing golden peach, lemon pith, brioche, cedar and nougat notes, followed by a wonderfully weighted plate delivering succulent fruit flavours with fleshy texture and juicy acidity, making it delectable and highly enjoyable. At its best: now to 2030." 


Rated Excellent & 93/100 Cameron Douglas MS, July 2023 (2022 Vintage)
"Barrel fermented aromas and palate of ripe and fleshy yellow stone fruits, fresh and baled apple, some quince and butterscotch moments and baking spices of barrel from cinnamon to vanilla. Generous weight and creaminess as the wine touches the palate, the gently warming alcohol and acidity deliver the fruit and barrel flavours seamlessly across the palate. Additional flavours of nut and some wood smoke add complexity. Acid line and fine tannins deliver additional mouthfeel – all leading to a balanced and generous finish. best drinking from late 2023 through 2028."
