The Must Have Kiwi Global Chardonnay Bargain – Global order books will open wide, demand will again exceed supply!

Introducing the spectacular 2021 Kumeu River Estate Chardonnay, regrettably yields were 35% less than 2020. International demand for KR Chardonnays saw NZ retailers out of stock of the 2020 Estate for 6-months. It will run out again, we’re lucky, and grateful to the Brajkovich family that it is grown & made in NZ where such world class quality remains affordable at just $37.99 bottle.

European & UK fine wine drinkers see this as one of the global Chardonnay must have bargains. It will run out again, we recommend you grab what you can afford. Kumeu River Estate Chardonnay boasts an incredible 14 years in a row 90+ points from Robert Parker and 24/25 years 90+ from Wine Spectator. The accolades will shortly flow for this showstopping 2021… but by then, it may be hard to find.

Crafted by long-time Master of Wine Michael Brajkovich MW, one of the world's finest exponents of the Chardonnay grape. The Estate is under-priced, beautifully refined Chardonnay that has historically trounced loads of white Burgundies many multiples of its retail price in blind tastings presided over by the world’s finest critics. Styled like a Puligny Montrachet with amazing purity, a hint of luxury and seductive elegance.

The Wine…
Subtle grapefruit and florals over pure peach, nectarine, biscuit, hazelnut and hints of toasty vanilla. Enthralling, vivacious and very concentrated. It deliciously fattens out to reveal a creamy core of mid-palate flavour before pirouetting to a long beguiling finish laced with pure stonefruit and delicious mealy, nutty complexities. A perfect array of flavour, complexity, balance, and elegance. 2021 Kumeu River Estate Chardonnay is not just benchmark Kiwi quality at its price... it also sets the bar globally. Enjoy with roast white meats and poultry and richer seafoods... save a glass to enjoy by itself too.

2021 Kumeu River Estate is spectacular, and production was 35% less than the 2020 vintage, which ran out 6-months ago. At $37.99 bottle, we’re lucky to enjoy such world class Chardonnay that we would have to pay many times its price for, were it from White Burgundy. Spectacular Chardonnay to stock up on and enjoy through 2030-2035. Don’t leave your purchase to long.

Enjoy, JEFF
