KUMEU RIVER ESTATE CHARDONNAY 2017
The Croation family of Brajkovich has firmly placed New Zealand Chardonnay on the map, with bottlings that beat top-class Burgundies in a 2014 blind tasting. Their estate bottling is drawn from six vineyard sites for a well-rounded, more complex and supple selection, which was whole-bunch pressed and underwent 100% barrel fermentation with natural yeast. The cool vintage lent a citrus and peach aroma, carried through with ample acidity on the finish.
