2015 Estate Chardonnay, Kumeu River, Kumeu

This is a beautifully styled Estate Chardonnay, with toast, fresh lime and yellow fruits. 2015 is a vintage that balances generosity of flavour with excellent freshness: it’s very Burgundian in character, with an intense palate that’s vibrant, rich yet also savoury and elegant. Outstanding, and a bargain yet again.

2015 Estate 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.
