KUMEU RIVER 'ESTATE'
|Origin||New Zealand, North Island|
Michael Brajkovich conjures up superb chardonnay. This is one of Kumeu’s best-value examples — bright and richly textured, with nuttiness, indications of grapefruit and taut acidity on the finish. Will Lyons, The Sunday Times (Dec 2020)
*Case price discount: Mix any 12 bottles (or 9l equivalent) of wine or 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits, Sweet Wine or Fortified to get the 'case price' for each bottle.
Oatmeal and crushed almond, even a little touch of hazelnut, A little more richness and texture than the Village, but a similar lime, lemon and grapefruit clarity, a delicious spangle brightness to the fruit and acidity in the finish, showing a little salt and flint. Very stylish. Rating: 93 Tom Cannavan, www.wine-pages.com (May 2020)
This has attractive fresh peaches and grilled pears with intensity and focus, as well as gently complex, spice and flinty nuances. The palate delivers so much supple and vibrant stone-fruit flavor. Drink now. Screw cap. Rating: 93 Nick Stock, www.jamessuckling.com (Oct 2019)
