"Rijkdom, kracht, intensiteit en complexiteit"

Kumeu's vlaggenschip. Nummer 2 in de lijst met beste Nieuw-Zeelandse wijnen van het jaar bij James Suckling en de hoogst gewaardeerde Nieuw-Zeelandse Chardonnay van het jaar in Robert Parker's Wine Advocate. Een benchmark voor dit prachtige wijnland dat ook als het om Chardonnay gaat een steeds prominentere plek inneemt op het internationale wijntoneel. En een benchmark voor Kumeu River, want 2022 is de dertigste jaargang van de Mate's Vineyard Chardonnay. Heeft de intensiteit en complexiteit met Kumeu River's Hunting Hill Chardonnay gemeen, maar waar die wijn dat koppelt aan precisie en finesse verbindt Mate's het met pure rijkdom en kracht. Hoort thuis tussen 's werelds beste Chardonnays.

Chardonnay van Mate's Vineyard in de regio Kumeu. Handpluk, spontane vergisting en 11 maanden rijping op Frans eiken (30% nieuw).

"Gorgeous precise aromas of apples, white peaches, some minerals, flint and stone. Subtle mangoes, too. Full-bodied but so intense and driven with a salty undertone and a driving finish. Some white pepper at the end with citrus skin. Focused and intense. Great finish. Better after 2026 but already fantastic. Drink or hold. Screw cap." (James Suckling, 98/100)

This wine celebrates the 30th vintage of Mate's wine. Purity and freshness, complexity and finesse. Floral and mineral, cashew and sweet spice moments. Complexities from on the palate with textures of acidity against the citrus fruit and sweet pith flavours, white fleshed fruits and a touch of grape fruit peel. Pure and silky, A fabulous wine, exciting and textured, lengthy and persistent. An exciting opportunity.

The nose on this 2022 Mate's Vineyard Chardonnay leads with candied bananas, pineapple husk, white peach and a hint of lychee, and the edges of the aromatics are feathered with preserved citrus, brine, curry leaf and apple skins. In the mouth, the wine is powered by supercharged fruit; it is crystalline in its way, an attribute that I have long-since associated with the Chardonnays from Kumeu River. The flavor is sapid and palate- staining, with just enough salt and savory spices in the fruit to make it super complex as well as powerful. It is precisely folded like origami, each crease in service of the overall shape. A wine that offers much and assumes nothing.

The 2022 Maté's Vineyard Chardonnay offers tension, power and an unrelenting sense of moving forward as if your palate has been put on a travelator. This is its 30th anniversary vintage. Currently it's closed and young with little aromatic generosity. There's nevertheless purity and a real sense of density. The richness is there but it's held within a brace of tension, ensuring precision and focus. After a couple of days, it loosens up a little so if you're thinking of opening it early, which I don't recommend, decanting may be your friend. I probably prefer the 2021 for its additional austerity but that may be me being subjective rather than objective.

Rich, slightly buttery chardonnay with nutty oak and yeast lees flavours together with a saline influence. Intense, appealing wine that is mellow and at the same time has a vibrant undercurrent. It would probably benefit from two to three years bottle age.

This vineyard, planted in 1990, has just produced its 30th vintage. There is leafroll on the all-Mendoza clone for the moment but the hen-and-chicken size of berries adds concentration and a tad of astringency. This is a more sheltered site than the others so the grapes are riper and the new oak proportion is up to 30%. They want to keep the vineyard going despite the virus. Pale straw. The richest of the line-up. But still very transparent and lively. Chewy finish. A wine in line with late 20th-century ideal of Chardonnay while Hunting Hill is closer to what is sought in the early 21st century.
