Description

Another stratospheric 95/100 by Top 3 World Wine Critic James Suckling for Kumeu River’s Estate Chardonnay. 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 “World Class” - an underpriced beautifully refined Chardonnay that has trounced many expensive white Burgundies in blind tastings presided over by the world’s finest critics. The international wine world is acutely aware of how good and relatively modestly priced Kumeu River’s Chardonnays are. Along with ever growing domestic demand, it’s why this Estate was off the shelves for 4-months. Michael says… “For us the 2022 vintage is right up there with 2021”. Get in early and stock up if you can so you can enjoy it all year. Of course… it ages magnificently… this 2022 will do 10-years with ease if well stored. Styled like a Puligny Montrachet with amazing purity, a hint of luxury and seductive elegance.

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, elegance. 2022 Kumeu River Estate Chardonnay is not just benchmarking Kiwi quality at its price... it also sets the bar globally. Enjoy with roast white meats, poultry and richer seafoods... save a glass to enjoy by itself too.
