2021 Kumeu River Maté's Vineyard Chardonnay

£54.00

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

Blend: Chardonnay

Kumeu River

The Brajkovich family and Kumeu River Wines is a story that parallels the New Zealand wine industry.

From the pioneering days to the establishment of the New Zealand wine industry to today, the Brajkovich family have been internationally recognised as producing world class wine.

Kumeu River Wines encompasses 30 hectares of vineyards, which are predominantly clay soils overlying a sandstone base. These soil types retain sufficient water at depth, even during the summer months, to ensure the deep vine roots continue to hydrate the vine without excessive vigour. Therefore, the vineyard doesn’t require irrigation, a factor that is critical to the quality of Kumeu River’s grapes.
