Kumeu, New Zealand
Respect, patience, and adaptability – Each is an integral part of the Kumeu River success story, not only in the making of good wine, but also in the making of a thriving family business that spans many generations.Kumeu River’s Chardonnays are considered the best in New Zealand, and among the best Chardonnays produced anywhere. Often mistaken for top quality Grand Cru Burgundies, these wines offer fantastic value for money.
“Kumeu River and (winemaker) Michael Brajkovich MW have both become synonymous with New Zealand’s finest Chardonnay. For over two decades they have fashioned Burgundy-inspired wines (particularly Meursault) with their Mate’s Vineyard Chardonnay winning accolades far and wide.” – Robert Parker
