Made from top quality grapes grown in six vineyard sites, Kumeu River’s Estate cuvée is a benchmark New Zealand Chardonnay. Spring frost significantly affected quantities of this 2015, the low yields and hot summer contributing to a wine that has exceptional depth and aromatic richness. Aromas are vibrant, recalling lemons and a hint of smoke. The palate is full bodied and silkily 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 (for drinking 2017-2020+).
