The everyday drinking range from Kumeu River take their name from the Village wines of France and have been hand harvested, using only indigenous yeast for fermentation and are made from grapes de-classified from the world renowned Kumeu River range.
The Kumeu Village Chardonnay is fast gaining endorsement in its own right over
a series of vintages. Most recently the influential Decanter magazine rated the 2016 Kumeu Village Chardonnay at 90/100 with Michael Cooper giving it four stars and Bob Campell a score of 91/100. This is an extraordinary feat for a “second” wine and adds weight to the argument that this could be New Zealand’s best value Chardonnay on the market.

91/100 Kumeu Village Chardonnay 2018
Entry-level chardonnay made from hand-harvested grapes from Kumeu and Hawke’s Bay. Impressive wine from a challenging vintage. Peach and apple flavours with an attractive seasoning of nutty yeast lees characters. A smooth-textured wine with a great balance of sweetness and fruity acidity. Offers good value at this price 05 Sep 2019
