Kumeu is situated half an hour north-west of Auckland. Its proximity to the ocean to the west and east means that this is a cool zone for vine growing, with regular cloud cover and cool sea breezes moderating potential high temperatures. Kumeu River’s Estate cuvée is a benchmark New Zealand Chardonnay. Aromas of this 2015 are vibrant, recalling lemons and a hint of smoke. The palate is full bodied and creamily textured, with attractive citrus and white peach flavours. This is a perfectly balanced, racy wine, where oak barrels have been used judiciously for maturation (20% new) to give delicate hints of spice and richness of mouth-feel, the finish being long-flavoured and fine.
