Winemaker Notes

One of the best vintages ever at Kumeu River and this is reflected in this wines richness, concentration and length. The intensity, depth of flavour and additional complexity are typical of the Chardonnay that we grow in Kumeu. With the influence of barrel fermentation and extended maturation on yeast lees, followed by malo-lactic fermentation to moderate the acidity, the Chardonnay fruit is given every chance to show itself in the best possible fashion. The perfumed aroma is reminiscent of peaches and honey, and on the palate the delicious buttery, mealy, hazelnut flavour is long and lingering. This wine will benefit greatly from a period of bottle maturation of two to four years.

Kumeu River, New Zealand
Image of winery
Kumeu River, our story of how the Brajkovich family came to New Zealand; brought wine making knowledge with them from Croatia to their new adopted home; and went on to be a founding family of the New Zealand wine industry.

Just as the Brajkovich family has grown, so too has the winery itself. Extensions and additions mark the milestones that have seen business adapt and expand over the years. Today, the winery produces around 250,000 bottles annually from 30 hectares of its own vineyards in Kumeu, and another 10 hectares from local growers.

The Chardonnay wines of Kumeu River have gained a strong foothold within the international market, receiving outstanding accolades. The vineyard has gone on to become the globally recognised benchmark for non-Burgundy produced Chardonnay.

But that is today; the Kumeu River Winery has been built on generations of hard work, belief, and a commitment to producing a world-class wine.
