Experience Chardonnay’s New Sensation from Down Under! The Kiwi That Took On Burgundy’s Premier Crus from Meursault, Chassagne and Puligny-Montrachet at a Fraction of the Price! Value Begins Under $15

“I didn't feel that Kumeu River's Chardonnays were some of the best in New Zealand. No, they were some of the best in the world! Did someone choke on their glass of Montrachet just then?” Neal Martin, Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate

That’s right, there is a new sensation in the world of chardonnay and it comes from Down Under. While America had Chateau Montelena that took on white Burgundy in the well-published 1976 Judgment Of Paris Wine Tasting, you might say New Zealand has Kumeu River. In a recent blind tasting comparison that included some of the world’s top wine critics, Kumeu River chardonnays took on many respected premier cru white Burgundies including the likes of Comtes Lafon, Sauzet, and Domaine Leflaive. The rising Kiwi star, as Jancis Robinson and other wine critics put it, “trounced the French opposition.” Regardless of the ratings or the results, what matters and what we can agree on, is as Jancis further states, “These wines really should be on the radar of any value-conscious white burgundy lover.”

The weather is finally warming up! Get your whites while the shipping temperatures are just right! Special pricing on these value gems is valid through April 25th at 11:59pm.

All my best,
Andrew
