2014 Maté's Vineyard Chardonnay, Kumeu River, Kumeu

If Coddington and Hunting Hill are Premier Cru quality, in 2014 Maté’s is undoubtedly at Grand Cru level. A concentrated, super-alluring nose gives way to a textured, concentrated palate of fantastic complexity. Outstanding in every vintage, in 2014 this is a revelation.

2014 Maté's Vineyard Chardonnay, Kumeu River, Kumeu
Kumeu River

Called “White Burgundy in Kiwi clothing” by Neal Martin and "an Auckland Pearl" by Julia Harding MW, no New World producer has received such critical acclaim over the last few years as Kumeu River. It’s no surprise: this is a New Zealand Chardonnay producer crafting wines of Grand Cru quality at village wine prices. And the connection to Burgundy is apt: these wines are dead ringers for top white Chassagne-Montrachet, Puligny-Montrachet or Meursault, without losing their own sense of identity.
