Description

Is this New Zeland's best kept secret?... Boasting an incredible 13 years in a row over 90/100 from Robert Parker and only once in 25 years under 90 from Wine Spectator. Made by long-time Master of Wine Michael Brajkovich who is one of the world's leading exponents of the Chardonnay grape, these days Kumeu River's Estate Chardonnay is an under-priced Burgundy slayer with an impeccable pedigree. Styled like a Puligny Montrachet with amazing purity and elegance, this 2017 vintage is another immaculate Chardonnay from Kumeu River.

Smells

A hint of grapefruit and florals over pure peach. nectarine, biscuit and hazelnut.

Tastes

Focused, vivacious and very concentrated, the mid palate fattens out to reveal a creamy core which soon pirouettes back into a long, stone-fruited finish with mealy, nutty nuances. Super stylish and very elegant, this 2017 again warrants its place under NZ's most illustrious Chardonnay label. Enjoy now through to 2026 and beyond.
