Kumeu River

Kumeu River Estate Chardonnay, Kumeu 2020 750ML ($37.95) $31.90 special
James Suckling 95 points
“Intense and complex chardonnay with lemons and peaches, as well as pastry and fresh cream. The palate is stacked with ripe-peach flavor and fresher, citrus tones and has complex, layered texture. Classy wine. Drink now. Screw cap.”
Rebecca Gibb MW-Vinous 91 points “There’s a sense of calm to the 2020 Chardonnay Estate, a blend of six different sites. It is mellow, offering a plump cushion of Chardonnay goodness on the midpalate but not becoming heavy nor opulent, its youthful edge and fresh acidity tying it together into a precise finish.
