£19.50 per bottle
OUT OF STOCK

The 2012 Estate Chardonnay from Kumeu River has more tropical tones on the nose compared to Sauzet’s Puligny-Montachet: hints of passion fruit and nectarine accompanying the fine mineral scents. The palate is refreshing and citrus-driven on the entry. There is lovely balance and harmony here, nicely weighted toward the leesy. This is a very fine Chardonnay from the Brajkovich family.

The 2012 Estate Chardonnay from Kumeu River has more tropical tones on the nose compared to Sauzet’s Puligny-Montachet: hints of passion fruit and nectarine accompanying the fine mineral scents, though it would benefit from a little more vigor. The palate is refreshing and citrus-driven on the entry. There is lovely balance and harmony here, nicely weighted toward the leesy. This is a very fine Chardonnay from the Brajkovich family.
