  • Kumeu River Chardonnay Kumeu Estate 2008

    Snoothrank:

    Complex on the nose, with fresh crispness tempered by sweet pear, apple, and white peach notes. Peach, green apple and lime notes with soft tangy acidity on the palate. I also get a really faint note of smokiness or tobacco. I don't really notice much oak. Great length. Read More

  • Kumeu River Sauvignon Blanc 2009

    Snoothrank:
