An extremely distinctive wine in the set of single site Kumeu chardonnays. The palate continues the flinty, mineral theme, with chiselled shape and pithy grapefruit bitterness that really smacks the finish into place. Drink now.

Supple and aromatic, offering a lovely mix of lemon blossom and butterscotch flavors on a creamy, juicy body. Gains momentum on the long, expressive finish. Drink now through 2022. 900 cases made. –MW
