Kumeu River Mates Vineyard Chardonnay 2019

98 POINTS | Cameron Douglas MS "This is highest score I have ever awarded a New Zealand Chardonnay - this wine is simply fantastic!"

Considered by many to be New Zealand's finest white wine, and in any conversation of the very finest Chardonnay that New Zealand produces, Mates is always approachable in its youth but has a long term proven cellar provenance. Very limited.

Tasting Notes

Cameron Douglas writes ""Tense, ripe, pure, mineral, finesse, charm and beguiling. This is the best Mate’s I have encountered - the vintage says it all - aromas and flavours of apples and peaches, citrus of grapefruit and lemon then layers of new-ish wood adding in texture, harmony, tension and length. The acidity is ripe and almost sweet to the taste also suggesting a light saline note. The palate is full and lengthy, pure and generous. Available from August - put your name down for a case. Best drinking likely beginning 2022 through 2032."

The winery writes "The 2019 vintage was exceptional and produced sensational Chardonnay across all our vineyards. Mate’s Vineyard is always the last site we pick each year. In 2019 the grapes certainly had the distinctive Mendoza millerandage, giving many small berries along with the normal sized ones, and as a result a wonderfully concentrated palate texture and fruit richness. Although still somewhat shy on the nose coming out of the barrel, with bottle age the full palette of complex aromas and bouquet of this wonderful wine will be gradually and seductively revealed."
