2018 Ray's Road Chardonnay, Kumeu River, Kumeu

A new wine for the Brajkovich family, from their holdings in Hawkes Bay. Very steely and stony: this is clearly the most Chablis like of their wines. A nice touch of reduction, and plenty of candied lemon on the palate. Long and impressive

2018 Ray's Road 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.
