Kumeu Villages Chardonnay 2012

Kumeu Villages Chardonnay Kumeu 2012 – $

Here I am taking for a test-drive another wine selected for serving at my 50th birthday party:

From Kumeu River. Hand-harvested. 13% alcohol. Pale gold.

Honeyed-malo notes and fresh apricots on bouquet. There is enough citrus character to prevent the solid body evident in the aroma from being cloying or fat. It feels simply-handled in the winery.

Medium-weight to drink, with typical ripe golden stonefruit flavours. There is plenty of oak influence which shows itself on the back of the palate. Easy and rewarding to drink, well put together as I expected, and a good bet. 3+
