  • 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:

    Smells and taste like an old grapefruit left on the kitchen counter top for the entire day. Has smells of lysol, the cleaning product, which was not very inviting. It tasted not too bad, with the lysol going away once you tasted it. But one cannot help thinking about someone cleaning the windows or the bathroom. Sad day.This was part of a wine t... Read More

  • Chardonnay Kumeu Mate's Vineyard 2004

    Snoothrank:

    Quite pineapple and fleshy tropical-fruited on the nose with almond accents. This is opulent in the mouth, rich and slightly viscous, but with vibrant acids. A fine contrasting bitterness enlivens the apple peel notes on the lush mid-palate. This really explodes on the finish. Clear with tremendous height and clarity to the fruit then feathering...

  • Kumeu River Village Chardonnay 2009

    Snoothrank:

    Earthy and perfumed with a gentle yet complex set of aromatics that are slightly herbal with some tea notes. Smooth, refined and bright on the palate, with a touch of lemon rind accenting the core of apple and pear fruit. Theres a nice mineral note on back end, leading to a refreshing, moderately long finish that shows a bit of orange pith with ... Read More

  • Kumeu River Chardonnay Hunting Hill 2009

    Snoothrank:

    Tight on the nose, reticent at first, with a touch of lip balm and some early berried fruit. This shows huge intensity as it rolls out across the palate with richness and depth, but it remains transparent. There is lovely intensity of pollen, apricot, apple and gentle wood tones, then lemon curd on the mid-palate. Huge length on the finish, whic... Read More

  • Chardonnay Kumeu River Estate 2009

    Snoothrank:

    More oak-driven aromas of smoke and toasted nuts accent the core of dried fruit aromas. Rich and a bit creamy up front with bright acids supporting a steely base. This is bright and clean with good depth and intensity but remains elegant and medium-bodied in the mouth with lovely length. The finish is slightly oak-driven but zesty and pure with ... Read More

  • Kumeu River Coddington Chardonnay 2009

    Snoothrank:

    Aloe,quartzy soil, apple blossom and a hint of honey come together on the nose. This is fairly rich on entry, though bright acids kick in quickly to really firm this up on the mid-palate which delivers ripe apple and pear fruit. While remaining bright, this does have a fine nutty, hazelnut brittle edge to it that adds a slight nougat/honey note ... Read More
