Kumeu River Cremant

14% abv

Vol- 75cl

Delicate strawberry red fruit Pinot aromas, and floral Chardonnay with bready yeast complexity. Delightfully creamy texture with a fine bead of bubbles, refreshingly dry with a long, lingering fine finish.

Winery Notes:
“We have for a long time thought that we could produce high quality sparkling wine from our vineyards in Kumeu, particularly from Chardonnay and Pinot Noir.

The Kumeu River Crémant fulfils this long held ambition. The French term Crémant may only be used to describe a specific type of sparkling wine and must meet exacting production methods to maintain the integrity of the name. These include a second alcoholic fermentation in the bottle, and a maturation on yeast lees of not less than nine months. A similar set of standards apply to the vinification, including hand harvesting and whole bunch pressing. As the term implies, the taste should be creamy.”

The Brajkovich family and Kumeu River Wines is a story that parallels the New Zealand wine industry. From the pioneering days to the establishment of the New Zealand wine industry to today, the Brajkovich family have been internationally recognised as producing world class wine. The Brajkovichs are focused on and internationally recognised as producing world class Chardonnay.

"Auckland, on the same latitude as southern Spain, may seem an unlikely location for vineyards capable of making precise, crystalline, slow-burning ripostes to white burgundy, but Kumeu River’s vineyards in the north-western suburbs of the city are cooled by ocean influence from both east and west, and summers can be cloudy. ‘For us 30 ºCelsius (86 ºF) is a really hot day, and as a result the acidity remains high', according to Michael Brajkovich, Kumeu River’s winemaker – and one of the first non-Brits to qualify as a Master of Wine." - Jancis Robinson
