KUMEU 'VILLAGE'

2018 Chardonnay Kumeu River

Grapes Chardonnay
Colour White
Origin New Zealand, North Island
ABV 13%

Hand-harvested, with around 25% of fruit from Hawke's Bay, made in a combination of stainless steel and older barrels, whole-bunch pressed. Creamy, a touch of oatmeal and spice, creamy apple, but fresh. Crisp and a touch of exotic fruit comes through. Rating: 90 Tom Cannavan, www.wine-pages.com (May 2020)

There’s a fresh, lively feel here with a very generous core of peaches and melon. Attractive depth and generous, fleshy texture. Drink now. Screw cap. Rating: 90 Nick Stock, www.jamessuckling.com(Oct 2019)

Kumeu River

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.
