Kumeu River Estate Chardonnay 2015 - Complex & Delicious!

Awards, Reviews and other Notes

90 pts Wine Spectator 5/31/17
Linear, with a focused profile of lime sherbet, lemon verbena and Meyer lemon flavors that are polished and vibrant. Shows plenty of intensity on the mouthwatering finish. Drink now through 2020.
92 pts Wine Advocate Issue #228 Dec 2016
The 2015 Estate Chardonnay is more open-knit and less taut than the single vineyard wines, with an expressive nose of ripe nectarines, pink grapefruit and guava, plus underlying notes of baking bread and ginger. Medium-bodied, it offers richness and good depth in the mouth with a an approachable, refreshing backbone and great harmony.

Winemaker Notes

The quantity of Estate Chardonnay for 2015 is less than expected due to spring frost and poor flowering. Due to the low yield this wine has remarkable depth and intensity. The nose is immediately fragrant and peachy, the texture rich and lingering with a beautiful bracing acidity on the finish. The wine is delicious now but with this level of concentration and complexity it certainly will be very long-lived.
