  1. Kumeu River Estate Chardonnay 2020 375ml
    Kumeu River Estate Chardonnay 2020 375ml
    Lightly but not excessively reductive on the nose. Already quite expansive on the nose with beautiful impact on the palate: citrus, blossom and really neat acidity without much astringency. Elegant and racy – almost lightweight on the mid palate and then it is impressively persistent. A thorough delight already. JANCIS ROBINSON

    We love the wines at Kumeu River. This is one of the best 'new world' Chardonnay producers that remains a surprising secret for many a Chardonnay lover. The estate is a blend of several of the sites worked by Kumeu and always has a softer more delicate air then some of the more powerful single vineyard bottlings. The 2020 is another wonderful effort.

  2. Kumeu River Rays Rd Chardonnay 2020
    Kumeu River Rays Rd Chardonnay 2020
     I adore Hawke’s Bay Chardonnay and I  can certainly see why these coolish climate kings have chosen to seek more fruit and also  more challenges in this part of Kiwiland. I love Rays road. Classy, layered and complete this  is a very different take on this grape from the remainder of the portfolio, given that the rest  come from Kumeu (north of Auckland). There is a distinct beginning, middle and end here, which is often a challenge in a new wine and particularly I love the acid line and elegance on the finish. (18/20) MATHEW JUKES
