The 2015 Kumeu River Estate Chardonnay is sourced from six different vineyard sites in the Kumeu Region. The nose is immediately fragrant and peachy with a touch of mealiness. The texture is supple with a beautiful bracing acidity on the finish for a crisp, refreshing experience. The wine is delicious now and will provide beautiful drinking over the next 6 years.

Varietal Composition: 100 percent Chardonnay
Appellation: Aukland, north island New Zealand
Aging: 100 percent barrel fermented with indigenous yeast, then matured 11 months in barrel

92 Points - Wine Advocate
"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." LPB, 12/30/16

92 Points, "Editors' Choice" - Wine Enthusiast
"The estate blend is a terrific value in this vintage, coming close to equaling the quality of the single-vineyard wines. Grilled pineapple and melon notes feature a strong acid line that drives through into a long finish." -JC, 7/1/17

90 Points - Wine Spectator
"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. 4,000 cases made." –MW, 5/31/17
