This Chardonnay from the incredibly accomplished and internationally revered Chardonnay producer, Kumeu River continues to receive impressive press around the world. The 'baby' Chardonnay in the Kumeu range now includes fruit from Kumeu's Rays Road vineyard in Hawkes Bay. It has always offered great value, and the 2021 is no exception. Not a big Chardonnay, just big on deliciousness!


Winery notes (2021 Vintage)
"This is a wine where we always have a bottle in the fridge. The perfect aperitif Chardonnay, it's a wine that pairs very well with all types of seafood. Fermented 40% in old French oak barriques, and 60% in stainless steel tanks there is very little oak influence on either nose or palate. This has allowed the vibrant fruit to show through beautifully with lively lime and lemon aromas and a flinty, mineral edginess with hints of fig and white peach.

The weighty mid-palate also shows peachy ripeness along with crisp acid minerality that gives the wine a refreshing cleansing quality. This wine is delightful as an aperitif, and even better to drink with fish and shellfish.

Indigenous yeast fermentation. 100% malo-lactic fermentation. 60% Tank Fermentation, 40% Barrel Fermentation (5 year old + French oak barriques). 58% Hawkes Bay, 42% Kumeu."

Rated Excellent, 5 Stars & 93+/100 NZ Wine Rater, July 2021 (2020 Vintage)
"This has a very appealing, clean, fragrant bouquet with subtle yet zesty lemon, and crisp, gala apple characters, complexed by aromas of lees, brioche, creme brulee, and wet stones. A restrained but very well-constructed wine with great harmony, balance, and poise and a salivating acid structure. It's all about texture, and drinkability. A wine that builds with time in the glass, and the palate goes on and on."


JancisRobinson.com (2020 Vintage)
"Surprisingly rich nose. Fine, appetising, crisp palate with just a little chewiness still evident at this point. There's a suggestion of sweet grapefruit juice. Really clean, fresh and long. Very Good Value."


93/100 Tim Atkin MW, timaitkin.com, October 2020 (2019 Vintage)
"If Michael Brajkovich MW were a Burgundian rather than a New Zealander, he would be among the most celebrated white winemakers in the Côte de Beaune, right up there with the likes of Dominique Lafon, Pierre-Vves Colin Morey and Jean-Marc Roulot. The good news for us is that we can buy his amazing Chardonnays at ludicrously cheap prices. This is only his entry-point wine, but is typically well balanced, refreshing and focused, with just a hint of oak spice, leesy complexity, some struck match undertones and a chiselled, refreshing finish. A Kiwi wine that’s better than many Puligny-Montrachets."


93/100 Bob Campbell MW, The Real Review, May 2020 (2019 Vintage)
"This is the best Kumeu Village Chardonnay that I can recall tasting thanks to an excellent vintage and perhaps the Hawke’s Bay component. It’s an ethereal chardonnay with appealing citrus, stone fruit and struck flint flavours. The wine has a pour-me-another-glass texture. Great value at this price."


91/100 Cameron Douglas MS, May 2020 (2019 Vintage)
"Really lovely bouquet of Chardonnay with a fleshy, varietal soft and silky textured bouquet (yes the bouquet!). On the palate – flavours of white peach and apple, citrus and spice and calm even emergence of oak. Medium+ ish acidity, a hint of salt and a balanced, even and lengthy finish. This is easily the best Village Chardonnay KR wine have produced. Best drinking is upon purchase and through 2022."

    5 star review  Absolutely fantastic experience with Vino Fino for our wedding. They do offer a free chiller trailer with large orders but unfortunately someone got in just before us to have that on our wedding weekend. The staff are lovely and helpful, we had wonderful interactions with Paul, Dean and James. We did not have any idea of what we wanted to supply to our guests but the recommendations made were top notch and the guests loved them. The amount recommended worked out well for us, they work with your budget and they have a buy back option if you do not use all the wine. Would recommend for events or if you do not know wines like us and you are looking for recommendations.

Vino Fino arranged a gift wrapped, hand delivered, chilled bottle of champagne for the morning of my best friends wedding, as I was stuck in the UK with COVID. A beautiful gift. It was like nothing was too much trouble for them. I was even able to dictate a small message. Thank you for your excellent service!
