Joe Czerwinski

Always the longest lived of the Kumeu River Chards, the 2017 Mate`s Vineyard Chardonnay starts off smoky and flinty, marked by zesty grapefruit and lime fruit. It`s medium to full-bodied yet tightly coiled, with great energy, thrust and vitality, which translate into tremendous length on the electric finish. 95 points

The 2017 Maté’s Vineyard Chardonnay has a really beautiful, quixotic bouquet of apricot blossom, white peach, minerals and dandelion scents that waft temptingly from the glass. The harmonious, lightly spiced palate is very well balanced with crisp acidity and a succinct, perfectly pitched finish that offers just the right amount of sapidity. Superb. Tasted at the Kumeu River Chardonnay vertical in London. 94 points
