Kumeu River Estate Chardonnay 2019

A lightly oaked Chardonnay with 45% fermented old French oak barriques, and 55% in stainless steel tanks. This has allowed the vibrant fruit to show through beautifully with lively lime and lemon aromas and a flinty, mineral edginess with hints of fig and white peach.

The texture is then supple with a gently concentrated body and beautiful bracing acidity on the finish. Drink now and or cellar for up to 6 years.

"The weighty mid-palate also shows peachy ripeness along with crisp acid minerality that gives the wine a refreshing cleansing quality. This wine is delightful as an aperitif, and even better to drink with fish and shellfish." - Winemaker's Comments

93/100, Bob Campbell MW "Solid, sturdy chardonnay with plenty of weight and concentration. Peppery tannins with grapefruit, stone fruit and a hint of oak. Slightly grippy phenolics together with fruity acidity offer a firm structure."
