Kumeu River Estate Chardonnay
"Kumeu River Chardonnay is drawn from six different vineyard sites in the Kumeu Region. We are particularly careful in selecting only the very best grapes from these vineyards for our Kumeu River Estate label. Hand harvested Whole-bunch pressed Indigenous yeast fermentation 100% barrel fermentation French Oak, 20% New Oak 100% malo-lactic fermentation 11 months maturation in barrel "
"The level of citrus fruit complexity, and the layering of aromas and flavours that this wine shows are stunning. The Chardonnay from 2020 is particularly fragrant and this purity is a step up from what we saw in 2019. This is a quality Chardonnay wine of style and pedigree that is delicious now but has the capability of aging as well as any of its predecessors."
