KUMEU RIVER 2010 CHARDONNAY "MATES"

WINE ADVOCATE 94 POINTS - "The 2010 Mate’s Vineyard Chardonnay is also a bit closed, displaying a chalky, lemon / lime, orange peel and jasmine nose with a hint of honeyed toast. It has a tightly knit texture with layers of citrus and mineral flavors, lifted crisp acidity and a long finish. Medium-bodied, it is built for the long haul and should drink from 2014 to 2021+."

INTERNATIONAL WINE CELLAR 92 POINTS - “Pale, bright straw-yellow. Musky pear, apricot, apple, lemon oil and a hint of smoky minerality on the nose. Juicy, smoky and dry, with lovely citrus lift giving the middle palate a perfumed quality. Silky-smooth, broad and very concentrated. Finishes ripe and long, with a firm spine of citrus fruits and minerals. This showed more structure and acidity with 24 hours in the recorked bottle, along with an intriguing saline complexity. A terrific New Zealand chardonnay.”

The “Maté's” Chardonnay is a rich, complex, full-bodied wine with delicious flavors of citrus, lemon, honey and butter
