    A tangy, juicy lemon curd flavor is at the core of this wine, with dried floral, cedar, spice and toasted almond notes. Finishes with a pleasantly bitter citrus peel accent. Drink now. Tasted twice, with consistent notes. 1,100 cases made.

    Tasted blind at Farr Vintners Kumeu/White Burgundy tasting. The nose on the 2012 Mate's Vineyard Chardonnay has more intensity and complexity than the 2010: very detailed and harmonious with limestone, nettle and citrus lemon notes. The palate is fresh and poised with lime and green apple, very well-judged acidity with a linear, Chablis-like finish that is an absolute joy. This is an outstanding Mate's Chardonnay, perhaps the best that Kumeu River produced that year.

    Strong apple, lime, and stone aromas. Lots of length. Plenty of acidity allayed with quite rich texture. Tastes like Puligny and a decided bargain. Closed with a screwcap which I love.
