Paleo Erik's notes Often referred to the best Chardonnay outside of Burgundy, and in fact, beating them outright in value for money. This rounded, full-flavoured wine has the acidity and depth required to tackle creamy pasta or risotto, maybe with smoked haddock and other smocked fish. Our price: 2,495 baht (best retail price in Thailand guaranteed) Sommelier's Comments James Suckling 97 Points The mineral character of this wine is currently so pronounced and the fruit so closed that it’s not easy, also because of the slight funk from reduction, to identify the grape variety. On the palate, this marathon-runner chardonnay is very clean and highly structured with lots of drive, the finish very long and complex. Drink or hold. Screw cap. Robert Parker's Wine Advocates 95 Points Always the longest lived of the Kumeu River Chards, the 2017 Mate's Vineyard Chardonnay starts off smoky and flinty, marked by zesty grapefruit and lime fruit. It's medium to full-bodied yet tightly coiled, with great energy, thrust and vitality, which translate into tremendous length on the electric finish.
