Heiner Lobenberg über:
Estate Chardonnay 2019


Lobenberg: Ein sehr komplexer, für Kumeu ungewöhnlich reichhaltiger, kraftvoller Chardonnay. Limette, Pfirsich, Brioche und tolles Holz, burgundisch, Puligny-Stil. Super für einen genialen Preis, er macht als Estate-Wein viel Ehre! 94-95/100


Suckling über: Estate Chardonnay

-- Suckling: This vintage punches well above its weight division with such complex and expertly curated style. Peach, nectarine, lemon and grapefruit aromas with flinty and pithy allure. The palate has a core of intense peach and citrus flavors with driving mineral and stony undertow to the long, fresh finish. Stunning value here. Drink or hold. Screw cap. 94/100


Parker über: Estate Chardonnay

-- Parker: Boasting signature scents of toasted hazelnuts and white peaches, the 2019 Estate Chardonnay is a classic example of the house style. Medium to full-bodied, it somehow manages to be creamy and zesty at the same time, with rich fruit enlivened by electric acidity and bright citrus notes. Always enjoyable young, this vintage looks to have at least a decade's worth of longevity. 93/100

Weingut über: Estate Chardonnay

-- Weingut: Kumeu River Chardonnay is drawn from six different vineyard sites in the Kumeu Region. We are particularly careful in selecting only the very best grapes from these vineyards for our Kumeu River Estate label. The 2019 vintage was exceptional and has produced the finest Estate Chardonnay that any of us can remember. The Kumeu vineyards that contribute to this wine gave us some magnificent fruit and we had a wide array of options in putting the Estate Chardonnay blend together. The level of citrus fruit complexity, and the layering of aromas and flavours that this wine shows are stunning. This is a quality Chardonnay wine of style and pedigree that is delicious now but has the capability of aging as well as if not better than any of its predecessors.
