Kumeu River 'Mates Vineyard' Chardonnay 2016


Kumeu River 'Mates Vineyard' Chardonnay 2016

What do these icons mean?

More than twenty vintages of this wine have been made, with the low-yielding Mendoza clone Chardonnay. The vine age and the distinctive characteristics of this clone help give Mate's Vineyard its unique character. This vineyard has always displayed a lifted fruit aroma reminiscent of ripe pears, but with a mineral edge. The palate is always long and concentrated. This vintage has given a wine that shows the complexity and concentration expected from this vineyard with great tautness and length on the palate.

This will evolve beautifully over the next six to eight years and beyond.

Wine Enthusiast – Choosing favorites among Kumeu River's Chardonnays is always difficult. The Maté's is potentially the longest lived of this year's releases, showcasing tight, crisp citrus fruit garnished with hints of butter, tropical fruit and mocha-like oak. Drink 2020-2028.


Robert Parker/Wine Advocate – Delicate lime blossom, lemon curd and yuzu with hints of fresh herbs, baker's yeast and chalk dust. Light to medium-bodied and very tightly-knit at this youthful stage, it has fantastic intensity of citrus and mineral flavors with a very long finish.
