Editorial Reviews for Kumeu River Chardonnay
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

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
Hand-harvested grapes, the use of only indigenous yeasts, and a few years of bottle aging make this a balanced, fragrant, and richly textured 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.
