2021 Kumeu River Maté's Vineyard Chardonnay
In 1990, Maté Brajkovich reworked the land and planted a new vineyard of Chardonnay vines on the site of the original vineyard that he and his family purchased in March 1944. The first grapes from this vineyard were harvested in March 1993, the year following Maté’s death. The resulting wine was released in November 1994 to coincide with celebrations marking the Fiftieth Anniversary of the Brajkovich Family’s arrival at Kumeu River.
100% barrel fermentation, 100% malolactic fermentation, followed by 11 months in barrel.
Tasting Note: Ripe, rich and concentrated. The wine shows the density and length that we expect from a terrific Maté's Vineyard vintage. Although still somewhat shy on the nose, with bottle age the full palette of complex aromas and bouquet of this wonderful wine will be gradually and seductively revealed.
Origin: Kumeu, New Zealand
