You won't taste a more sophisticated example of New World Chardonnay at this price. The intergrity of this producer shines through in this finely focused detailed wine. With only minimal aged oak influencing the lanolin like textural layers, the delicate intergration of beez wax, light stone fruit and grapefruit leads to a  deft line of acid rarely seen in wines at this level. This wine will change your opinion of Chardonnay as we used to  known it. Delicous. - Brendon F

Details

Kumeu River Wines encompasses 30 hectares of vineyards, which are predominantly clay soils overlying a sandstone base. These soil types retain sufficient water at depth, even during the summer months, to ensure the deep vine roots continue to hydrate the vine without excessive vigour. Therefore, the vineyard doesn’t require irrigation, a factor that is critical to the quality of Kumeu River’s grapes.

The vineyards are trained on a ‘Lyre’ trellis to help optimise exposure to light and increase grape maturity and quality. One of the distinguishing factors of Kumeu River’s wines is all of the grapes are harvested by hand. This allows the opportunity to remove sub-standard grapes by hand; the result is a net yield of purely high-quality grapes.
