2017 Estate Chardonnay, Kumeu River, Kumeu

Fresh and elegant on the nose, with notes of green apple and lemon oil, the palate of this Estate Chardonnay is simply glorious. There’s texture yet fine acidity, and a finish that lingers and has you reaching for another glass. Brilliant, and such a bargain.

2017 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.
