"The first vintage of Village Chardonnay I tasted was from the 2002 vintage and it has been my “house Chardonnay” ever since." Bob Campbell - MW

Kumeu River Wines and the owners, the Brajkovich family, are icons of the New Zealand wine industry. This Chardonnay consistently over delivers for its modest price tag!!

Winery description
"weighty mid-palate also shows peachy ripeness along with crisp acid minerality that gives the wine a refreshing cleansing quality. This wine is delightful as an aperitif, and even better to drink with fish and shellfish. 100% hand harvested 100% whole bunch pressed Indigenous yeast fermentation 100% malo-lactic fermentation 58% Tank Fermentation 42% Barrel Fermentation (5 year old + French oak barriques) This has allowed the vibrant fruit to show through beautifully with lively lime and lemon aromas and a flinty, mineral edginess with hints of fig and white peach."
