Kumeu River Estate Chardonnay 2014 – $$$
Brilliant Pale gold. 13.5% alc.
Smells fine and refined, mealy, light golden stonefruit characters with the warmth of oak and vanilla. Bounty and restraint in one. European in style.
Soft and full up front on palate. Smooth mouthfeel lovely integration of fruit and acid with complexity in the mid palate. Great depth. Citrus and golden apples at the finish
Totally moreish and immersive. Makes me want to come back to the glass. 93 points
