Kumeu River Chardonnay, Mate’s Vineyard – 2016 – James Suckling – 95 Points
This great chardonnay is just beginning to give its best. Cool and very fresh with lemon-blossom and lemon-curd character, married to considerable richness and animating acidity, this proves that New Zealand can play in the global chardonnay first league. Super fresh finish. Drink or hold. Screw cap.
