  • The benchmark for Chardonnay produced outside of Burgundy, Kumeu River is still a family affair, with Michael Brajkovich (NZ's 1st MW and resident yeast freak) the longtime winemaker since taking the reins from his father. Their Village Chardonnay is whole bunch pressed and fermented with indigenous yeast. 75% of the wine ages in tank and 25% matures in used French oak barrels.
