2009 Kumeu River Mate's Vineyard $40

Aromatic and slightly spicy on the nose with a touch of honied character, candy corn and preserved lime fruit. Very round and supple in the mouth, though with bright acids supporting a very fine mineral, toffee almond, dried citrus and touch of pineapple core of fruit. Turns a bit more toffeed and nutty on the finish which also shows vibrant acids and mineral cut. Nice finale of pithy almost grapefruit character. More Burgundian, there' s something innately Burgundian about this wine. Very clear finish bit of spice on finale. 93pts
