KUMEU RIVER VILLAGE CHARDDONAY
he Village wines represent a level of well crafted wines at a modest price range that benefit from the care and attention shown to the Estate and and Single Vineyard wines. These wines are made from sustainably grown grapes that are hand harvested, fermented using only wild yeast with extended maturation on yeast lees and bottled in our cellars in Kumeu.
The perfect aperitif Chardonnay this wine also goes very well with all types of seafood. Fermented 45% in old French oak barriques, and 55% in stainless steel tanks there is very little oak influence on either nose or palate. This has allowed the vibrant fruit to show through beautifully with lively lime and lemon aromas and a flinty, mineral edginess with hints of fig and white peach.
