2020 Kumeu River, Village Chardonnay, Kumeu 12x75cl

VM87
“The 2020 Chardonnay Kumeu Village is the “entry” to New Zealand's most famous Chardonnay producer's range. It is clean and precise and focuses on pure fruit, offering flavors of nectarine, red... grapefruit and white flowers. While some of the wine has been fermented in French oak, there is very little evidence of oak in terms of aroma and flavor, although the zesty style has had its corners rounded by barrel influence. A bright, crisp Chardonnay for enjoying in youth.” Rebecca Gibb MW, Vinous
