Kumeu River is Profiled in Charleston Style & Design

As harvest gets underway in New Zealand, Bob Calvert, a North America wine writer, profiles Kumeu River in Charleston Style & Design. Included in the article are three reviews of Kumeu River’s highly acclaimed Chardonnay wines, using the adjectives most often attributed to these beautiful, Burgundy-like wines , “Its flavor combines evanescent honeysuckle with a hint of hazelnut sustained by tartness and flinty minerality…complex bouquet comprising intriguing aromas of oak, honey and moist stones…Citrus elements predominate in the mouth—Meyer lemon and lime—along with faint honey and delicate yeastiness… Subtle, well-integrated acidity makes this an excellent food wine.”
