Fresh bread, fresh goat’s cheese and a hint of honey and citrus
Made by Master of Wine Michael Brajkovich, the Kumeu River Kumeu Crémant is a delicious dry sparkling that has impressed all that have tasted the wine. As the saying goes, there should always be a bottle of bubbles in the fridge for a special occasion ...sometimes that special occasion is that you have a bottle of bubbles in the fridge!
The wine is made up of 60% Chardonnay, with the balancing 40% being Pinot Noir. Bone dry with lots of citrus fruit up front. The mid palate is quite yeasty and biscuity with a hint of honey and cream on the finish. It was aged on the lees from over 24 months and is a bone dry with an elegant body and lingering finish.
"The wine is made mostly from Chardonnay, the key grape at this small family owned and operated wine specialist; here it makes up 60% of this wine’s blend, with the balancing 40% being Pinot Noir. The wine is bone dry with lots going on and flavours that remind me of fresh bread, fresh goat’s cheese and a hint of honey and citrus. It was aged on lees from August 2013 til May 2016 and is a bone dry with a full body and lingering finish."
