95 POINTS | NZ Wine Rater
Super Classic that ranks in any conversation of our finest Chardonnays. For many commentators, Kumeu River represents the pinnacle of New Zealand Chardonnay production and this is world class wine by any yardstick.
Vegetarian and Vegan friendly.
The winery writes: "The 2020 vintage was exceptional and along with 2019 has produced and Estate Chardonnay the rivals the very finest we have made . The Kumeu vineyards that contribute to this wine gave us some magnificent fruit and we had a wide array of options in putting the Estate Chardonnay blend together. The level of citrus fruit complexity, and the layering of aromas and flavours that this wine shows are stunning. This is a quality Chardonnay wine of style and pedigree that is delicious now but has the capability of aging as well as if not better than any of its predecessors."
NZ Wine Rater writes "This wine has a very stylish, complex, alluring bouquet.There are appetizing aromas of green fig,red apples, and grapefruit with integrated white pepper, lees, and creamy malolactic influence. Delicious citrus fruit flavours persist on the palate, and the crisp acid is in perfect harmony. There is a wonderful energy to the palate which sings from whoa to go. This really is the complete package."
