Description

Boasting an incredible 13 years in a row 90+ points from Robert Parker and 24/25 years 90+ from Wine Spectator. Crafted by long-time Master of Wine Michael Brajkovich... one of the world's finest exponents of the Chardonnay grape. Kumeu River Estate Chardonnay is an underpriced refined Chardonnay that has trounced many expensive white Burgundies in blind tastings by the world's finest critics. Styled like a Puligny Montrachet with amazing purity and elegance, this 2018 is another immaculate Estate release bound to score in the 90's with Parker & Spectator again.

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 2018 again warrants its place under NZ's most illustrious Chardonnay label. Enjoy now through to 2028 and beyond.

We taste, rate & guarantee every wine we sell.
