Kumeu River are, to put it bluntly, Chardonnay geniuses, with Michael Brajkovich's creations consistently blitzing the global competition. Yields are kept low to lift the concentration of aromas and flavours, and all of the grapes are harvested by hand and whole bunch pressed. From the entry-level Village to the sublime Mate's Vineyard, these are consummate interpretations of one of the world's great grapes.

Supple and approachable, the limestone soils offer a unique expression

The wine is fragrant and flinty with a hint of pink grapefruit. The palate is supple but with a limestone edge that is piercing and lingering.

It will be interesting to see how this wine develops but we fully expect to see it improve with bottle age along the same lines as the other Kumeu River wines.

Beautifully forward with a supple approachability

Usually the most flamboyant wine when young, the 2019 Coddington has an impressive bouquet of white peach, apple, apricot and minerality that's mirrored on the palate.

The wine has density, concentration and luscious creaminess we expect from Coddington and while this makes the wine easy to drink at this early stage no doubt it will take on lovely bottle age as it has done with previous vintages.

This wine is simply fantastic.

Aromas and flavours of peach and apple with layers of grapefruit and lemon citrus. The new oak adds texture and balance adding to the length of this wine. The palate full and generous with wonderful length.

Best drinking over the next 10 years, you'd best buy a case and see how this develops.

Supple, approachable and wonderfully fragrant.

The Chardonnays from 2019 are supple and approachable and this makes the typically fragrant Hunting Hill very pretty, with its ripe peach and lemon aromas and hint of oak spices.

The palate has a supple texture and lingering flavour which provides a long finish, and it has a salty, mineral tang on the end. As with previous vintages of Hunting Hill we expect this to drink well for 6 – 8 years.
