Dusty and earthy on the nose, with a nice balance of apple fruit and wood spice. Soft and expansive in the mouth, though this tightens up on the mid-palate, leading to a very clear precise expression of orange-tinged orchard fruits with light mineral and pollen top notes that emerge on the moderately long finish. 89pts

Kumeu River's Estate bottling remains among the finest in New Zealand, beautifully balancing oak and fruit in an intricate ballet of toast, vanilla, melon and pineapple.

This seems more advance with barley and caramel and sliced white peach and limes. Full and balanced with plenty of fruit. Open and decadent. James Suckling.

Bright, tangy and elegant, this vibrant wine has grapefruit and pineapple flavors at the fore, picking up apple and spice as the finish lingers effortlessly. Drink now through 2017. 7,000 cases imported. -HS Wine Spectator. A Chardonnay wine from in New Zealand. 2007 Kumeu River Chardonnay 750ml

"The wine from this spectacular vintage is ripe

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.

Winemaker's Notes:

The 2009 vintage was a little cooler than the previous two vintages and the wines are a little more restrained and delicate. The Estate Chardonnay was selected from the ripest parcels of Chardonnay we harvested in 2009. The wine is more restrained on the nose than the 2008 with citrus rather than peach notes but the texture, length of flavour and balance of the 2009 is close to perfect.
