"Kumeu River's flagship Chardonnay achieves a concentration and complexity that confirms its exalted status. Big, yet supremely elegant wine with pineapple, peach, mineral. spicy oak and roasted nut characters. Richly textured with a lingering finish. A class act"

"This wine is made similarly to the other two single vineyard wines except that it gets a bit more new oak, around 30-33%. The 2008 Mate's Vineyard Chardonnay begins with butterscotch, toast and apricot kernel notes, leading to fragrant aromas of orange blossom, honeysuckle, coriander seed and warm Golden Delicious apple slices. The palate is very tight-knit with great tension, wonderfully crisp and pure acid, and a creamy richness that lingers on and on in the mouth...

Mate's Vineyard was so named after the estate's founder, Mate (pronounced Matty) Brajkovich, passed away in 1992. It is an original block near the winery, which was replanted to Mendoza Clone Chardonnay in 1990"
