Kumeu River 'Estate' Chardonnay 2015
This wine was fermented in a combination of old French oak barriques (25 percent) and stainless-steel tanks (75 percent), so there is very little oak influence on either nose or palate. 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 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.
Robert Parker/Wine Advocate – The 2015 Estate Chardonnay offers notes of fresh peaches, pears and spiced apples with an undercurrent of baker's yeast. Light to medium-bodied, it is clean and fresh and yet with good primary fruit intensity, which should develop gracefully over the next 5-7 years.
