Kumeu River, Estate Chardonnay, Kumeu

Colour: White
Vintage: 2022
Region: Auckland, Kumeu

The Estate Chardonnay is sourced from six different vineyard sites in the Kumeu region (four of which are owned by the Brajkovich family and the other two are managed by them). Hand-harvested, whole-bunch pressed, and wild fermented in old French oak, before 11 months’ maturation in barrel. This is the wine that last vintage (2021) was described by Jancis Robinson as “a fair copy of fine Chassagne!”

Tasting Notes and Scores

93+ BI

Wonderful nose – complex and inviting and layered. It instantly and confidently asserts itself as being a top-class Chardonnay, with just the right amount of struck-match and gunflint reduction, white flowers, and subtle baking spice on the nose. Ripe stone fruit – apricot and white peach – follow on the palate, along with lemon curd and creamy marzipan. The mid-palate richness is balanced with a driven, mouthwatering acidity. This is a serious step-up from the Village and a serious Chardonnay in its own right. Long and saline finish. Drink 2023-2035.

Some real richness on the nose. Then a green streak. Very fine texture! With Puligny savour and lift. Creamy yet fresh. Bullseye for the style. Good light grip on the end. Convincing. GV 13% Drink 2023 – 2028.
