Review KUMEU RIVER CHARDONNAY 'MATES VINEYARD' 2014
KUMEU RIVER CHARDONNAY 'MATES VINEYARD' 2014
91 Points - Stephen Tanzer - The Wine Advocate: "(1993 was the first crop for these vines): Pale bright yellow. Sexy spices and perfumed yellow stone fruits, apple and pear on the nose. A step up in musky minerality and briskness from the Estate blend, showing superb energy and tactile lift. More spicy and savory than fruity or sweet. Serious rich but backward Chardonnay with strong lingering salinity and a bone-dry finish. Not giving up much today, and a bit more linear than the 2013 (less concentrated?) but firm and persistent on the aftertaste."
