Aromatic and slightly spicy on the nose with a touch of honied character, candy corn and preserved lime fruit. Very round and supple in the mouth, though with bright acids supporting a very fine mineral, toffee almond, dried citrus and touch of pineapple core of fruit. Turns a bit more toffeed and nutty on the finish which also shows vibrant acids and mineral cut. Nice finale of pithy almost grapefruit character. More Burgundian, there' s something innately Burgundian about this wine. Very clear finish bit of spice on finale. 93pts


User Reviews for Kumeu River Chardonnay Kumeu Mate's Vineyard

Winemaker's Notes:

Mate's Vineyard has always displayed a lifted fruit aroma reminiscent of ripe pears, but with a mineral edge. The palate is always long and concentrated. The vintage has given a wine that shows the complexity and concentration we expect from this vineyard with great tautness and length on the palate. The wine will evolve beautifully over the next six to eight years and beyond.
