Kumeu River Estate chardonnay 2006

Leave a comment

If you love chardonnay, this one takes some beating. It has that perfectly harmonious balance of a class wine. It is instantly gratifying, just delicious. Heaps of buttery, luscious, crisp feelings and a hint of minerality.

I could drink this till the cows come home but managed to save some for Suzi. Well done Kiran for sourcing this. It was available at The Wine Society, and is now available at Berry Brothers for £20.00/bottle and Bennetts wines for £17.00.

Great value for a wine that will stand up to a top Pulingy/Chassagne Montrachet. This will be on our next blind tasting evening.

Farr Vintners are selling this for £130 a case in bond, so about £14.28 a bottle, which is great value. The only problem is the £500 minimum order through Farrs – anyone want to club together?
