Burgundy and Kumeu are always mentioned in the same breath almost to the point of cliche - however, the wine speaks for itself, blows the cliche aside and demonstrates precisely why champions of this legendary NZ estate see a wine sitting comfortably among the greats of white burgundy. While the Kumeu wines are all gorgeous in their youth, even the estate wine the will show its true colours over the next decade as it continues to unfold and improve. While the 2022 is yet to be reviewed, Gary Walsh scored the 2021 94 points and Jancis Robinson said of the 2021 that it was a "fair copy of a fine Chassagne" - considerable praise for a sub-$50 chardonnay - I will be hiding a few of these away! Randall

"The excellent 2022 vintage came on the heels of three others, in a magnificent chain of four superb quality harvests. The Kumeu vineyards that contribute to this wine gave us a blend of Chardonnay that is particularly ripe, peachy and not only delicious to drink, but also has the concentration and lingering complexity that we expect from this wine. This is quality Chardonnay wine of style and pedigree that we know has the capability of aging as well as any of its predecessors." - From the winemaker, Michael Brajkovich MW
