Kumeu River, Rays Road, Chardonnay, Kumeu, Auckland – 2019

${symbol}${ activeVariant.price | money }

The 2019 Rays Road Chardonnay displays aroma of citrus peel, flinty minerals and salty seashells. There are creamy, peach-like flavours on the mid-palate, but then it finishes firmly with zesty fresh acidity and a steel backbone.

The 2019 vintage was exceptional and produced sensational Chardonnay across all the winemakers vineyards. The limestone-based vineyard at Rays Road in Hawkes Bay has yielded some uniquely characterful Chardonnay from this vintage.

"A bit more floral and citrusy than the Kumeu-region bottlings, this shows plenty of pineapple and even lemon-lime aromas and flavors. Medium-bodied, it's crisp and zesty, with a long, citrusy finish."
