This year's Village Chardonnay features very attractive lifted fruit aromas, along with a touch of nuttiness: the hint of hazelnut that is so typical of Chardonnay. The palate also shows a nice peachy ripeness along with a crisp flinty character that gives the wine a refreshing cleansing quality. This wine is perfect to drink with fish and shellfish.
"Kumeu River's 2008 Village Chardonnay is a real cracker at a bargain price. Usually coming from about 8 different sites, around a third of the production is barrel fermented while the other 2/3s are tank fermented. This wine gives intense pineapple and apricot aromas with some cream and toast plus a touch of meal. Crisp, medium bodied, there’s good concentration and texture here with a long finish. Delicious now, it should drink nicely through 2014."
The Wine Advocate
"Kumeu’s entry-level Chardonnay shows less concentrated fruit and less oak influence than its big siblings, but nonetheless displays ample pineapple and pear fruit in a full-bodied format. The oak is barely noticeable, making the wine straightforward and easy to drink."
"A lean, flinty style, offering crisp acidity and clean, refreshing pear, lemon, lime and green apple notes. Drink now. 2,000 cases imported."
