Creating New Zealand’s most refreshing tasting wines is the reason we get out of bed in the morning. While we can’t always be with you to enjoy one of our famous plonks, we do want your Matua to be as fresh and flavourful as possible.

To this end, our smartest boffins got together and created Chill Check – a nifty piece of what’s called “thermographic label” technology which ensures your Matua is perfectly chilled and ready to drink.

How does Chill Check work? Just place your wine in the fridge, ice box, cooler, esky or chilly bin – any cooling device really – and once the wine is chilled to perfection, a small snowflake will appear in the bottom right hand corner.

What’s the perfect drinking temperature I hear you ask? To ensure the best possible flavours and aromas, the sweet spot is around 6-8 degrees Celsius (or 42 to 46 degrees Fahrenheit)

We are rolling out Chill Check across our wines varietals, ensuring you can enjoy these wines as much as we enjoyed making them.
