A deep brilliant crimson with an underlying amethyst hue, immediately offers up concentrated blackcurrant, blackberry, dark plum, cocoa-powder and cedar with a subtle marine note in the background. The ripe dark and red fruit is fresh and varietally defined, enlivening the wine with layers of brightness, persistence and appeal. This depth of fruit, balanced by the bright, ripe, acid tension, carries right through to its fine dry finish.

First made in 1982, Awatea continues to represent the vest of the classic Hawkes Bay Cabernets / Merlot blend.

Te Mata Estate was established in 1896 and remains family-owned, creating small batches of internationally recognised wines from their Hawkes Bay vineyards and in New Zealand’s oldest wine cellar.
