Kumeu River's Crémant
"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."
