Matahiwi ‘Holly’ Hawke’s Bay Chardonnay 2015

With plantings of Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Gris and Pinot Noir totalling 80 ha, Alastair Scott’s Matahiwi Estate is one of the most significant wine producers in the greater Wairarapa. The modern winery on Paierau Road on the outskirts of Masterton has been run by the very experienced Jane Cooper since 2002, and she has made some very creditable and outstanding wines. Jane recently announced that she will be leaving at the end of this month, so there will be big shoes to fill. Matahiwi sources Chardonnay fruit from Hawke’s Bay, as there are no estate plantings of the variety. The premium ‘Holly’ Chardonnay is a star of the Matahiwi portfolio. Here, I review the new 2015 vintage.
