External Reviews for Kumeu River Chardonnay
This Chardonnay balances flavor intensity with subtle winemaking to produce an elegant wine that we found reminiscent of a nice Burgundy. Its rich core of apple fruit gives way to gently assertive notes of vanilla, tropical flowers and earth. This wine has a track record of aging exceptionally well and remains one of New Zealand’s finest whites, year in and year out.
The perfect condition of the grapes and the lovely ripe nature of the vintagemeant that this wine saw a little more new oak than usual (25%). The beautifulpeach and hazelnut aromas along with the silky textural richness are distinctcharacteristics of this wine even at this young stage. This is undoubtedly oneof the best vintages we have seen of this wine and is a sheer delight to tasteand drink.
