Kumeu River Estate Chardonnay, Kumeu, New Zealand 2017
"The 2017 Estate Chardonnay has a fresh, well-defined bouquet of citrus fruit complemented by subtle scents ofbriocheand almond. The palate is taut and crisp on the entry with a twist of sour lemon. Very saline in the mouth, not powerful but full of tension. The aforementioned saline tang lingers on the aftertaste. Superb - one of the best Estate releases in recent years. Tasted at the Kumeu River Chardonnay vertical in London."
