      Chardonnay, Village, Kumeu – 2017

      A generous array of ripe pears and poached peaches with a ripe and forward feel. This has a lot of flavor. Nicely resolved at the finish. Drink now. Screw cap.

      Incorporating approximately 20% Hawke's Bay fruit from a recently acquired vineyard, the 2017 Village Chardonnay is one of the strongest I can recall, despite a challenging vintage. Mainly fermented and aged in older barrels, it's medium-bodied and plump in the mouth, with notes of peach and pineapple.

      This single-vineyard wine hums on the nose but sings on the palate. Aromas of roasted, salted nuts, delicate orange and lemon peel seem to float in midair. On the palate, the toasty oak may be in plain view, but it's beautifully balanced by river stone minerality, crystalline acidity and a satiny mouthfeel that never seems to end...

      Chardonnay, Maté’s Vineyard, Kumeu – 2016

      From New Zealand's Chardonnay expert, this offers a smokey and briny nose marked by salted nuts and grilled stone fruit. These tones glide to the effortlessly silky, smooth palate, threaded by stoney minerality, pristine acidity and a lengthy tangy, savory finish. Drink now—2024.
