The Brajkovich family have been in the Kumeu River area since 1944, where they focus on producing world class Chardonnay, generally from single vineyards. Their wines are favourably compared to the best white Burgundies available.
93 Points The Wine Advocte: "Gentle notes of toasted grain mark the nose of the 2018 Mate's Vineyard Chardonnay, framing ripe pineapple and white peach aromas. There's a hint of bacon fat too. On the medium-bodied palate, the wine is slightly custardy and silky, while at the same time, it's crisp and focused, tightening on the finish into a coiled spring of citrus zest. Like most vintages of Mate's, this ideally needs a couple of years in the cellar to fully express itself." Nov 2019
