Description

Boasting an incredible 14 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 MW... one of the world's finest exponents of the Chardonnay grape. Kumeu River Estate Chardonnay is an underpriced beautifully refined Chardonnay that has trounced many expensive white Burgundies 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, this 2020 possibly takes a small step up from their previously finest ever 2019 Estate release... as if that were possible. If you desire to drink world class Chardonnay with purity and precision and pay modestly for the pleasure... 2020 Kumeu River Estate is a wine you should hoard to enjoy through 2030-2035. More than one case is recommended should finances permit.

Smells

Subtle grapefruit and florals over pure peach, nectarine, biscuit, hazelnut and hints of toasty vanilla.

Tastes

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. 2020 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.
