KUMEU RIVER 'VILLAGE'
|Origin||New Zealand, North Island|
Fermented 25% in old French oak barriques, and 75% in stainless steel tanks. Hand harvested. Very grown-up Chardonnay from these maestros on the North Island of New Zealand. 'Old school' up to a point but with such bright lines and perfect weight, this is so much more than a Burgundy impersonator. A great wine in its own right, full of character and a bargain to boot. As ever this is a brilliant introduction to the superb Kumeu River range. L&S (Jul 2017)
*Case Price: Mix any 12 bottles of wine or 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits or Fortified to get the 'case price' for each bottle.
From the pioneering days to the establishment of the New Zealand wine industry to today, the Brajkovich family have been internationally recognised as producing world class wine. The Brajkovich family continue to harvest their grapes at Kumeu and refine their wine making skills.
The Brajkovichs are nationally recognised as a founding family of the New Zealand wine industry, and the current generation are internationally recognised as producing world class Chardonnay.
Just as the Brajkovich family has grown, so too has the winery itself. Extensions and additions mark the milestones that have seen business adapt and expand over the years. Today, the winery produces around 250,000 bottles annually from 30 hectares of its own vineyards in Kumeu, and another 10 hectares from local growers.
