75cl * 13.5% ABV * Auckland, New Zealand
Michael Brajkovic - the first New Zealander to become a Master of Wine - believes this is the finest Estate Chardonnay to ever leave the Kumeu River cellars. Full and toasty on the palate, showing a hint of smoke and intense citrussy fruit, it certainly lives up to its critical billing as ‘White Burgundy in Kiwi clothing’. In comparitive French terms, what you have here is Grand Cru quality at a village wine price. Drink to 2025.
