Brut Méthode Traditionelle 2019
Delicate florals on the nose with mineral purity, matched with toasted brioche on the palate. A perfect aperitif style!
“Complex and quite elegant, there’s a core nutty quality leading to aromas of fresh citrus and stone fruit scents. A full and richly textured wine on the palate with a voluminous mousse that is persistent with a fine bubble. The finish is equally impressive with flavours that mirror the bouquet along with the touch of spice. Fresh, balanced and well made.”
95/100 – Outstanding

Kumeu River Crémant NV
Kumeu River has always believed that they could produce high quality sparkling wine from their vineyards in Kumeu, particularly from Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. The Kumeu River Crémant fulfils this long held ambition.
“A very fresh and attractive, lemon and pastry-scented nose with a dried-flower edge, too. The palate has attractive, fresh peaches and biscuity, savory flavors and delivers a fresh, crisp and lively texture.”
“Mostly from the 2016 vintage with 10% reserve wine. It was bottled in December 2016 and disgorged in February 2021. Rich, creamy wine with citrus, green apple, and fresh bready yeast lees characters. Mouth-wateringly dry with a tiny stab of bitterness on the finish.”
