5 Star - ★ ★ ★ ★ ★   & Top Wine, Dish Magazine, June/July 2014

Matawhero 2013 Church House Malbec

"Beautifully glossy, vivid scarlet-black in the glass bursting with ripe plum, raspberry and cherry characters on the nose," noted Yvonne Lorkin. Cameron Douglas said "this wine was very well made" and made a note to "decant for service". Packed with fresh fruit and lifted spices it has hefty acidity (to be expected with such a young wine) yet has lovely follow-through on the palate. Stunning stuff.


4 Star - ★ ★ ★ ★   Cuisine Magazine, May 2014

Matawhero 2013 Church House Chenin Blanc

"Chenin Blanc has a long history in Gisborne, where it was planted to make bulk wine in the 1970s. Now that quality-driven wineries like Matawhero are devoting care to the variety, attractive renditions such as this are restoring Chenin Blanc's reputation. This wine has lovely floral, lime, stonefruit and honeysuckle notes with a nice acidity and creaminess on the palate. Beautiful with seafood and poultry."
