Kumeu River Estate Chardonnay Tasting Notes
Well-defined aromas of flowers, citrus and white peach.
Flavours combine lime fruit with toasty oak and vanilla. The palate is medium weight and quite lean. The oak lends classic floury notes to the mid-palate. The alcohol is well balanced. The acidity is fresh and mineral, with a pure, concentrated finish that lingers.
