Kumeu River Rays Road Chardonnay 2019
Hawkes, New Zealand
Rays Road is Kumeu River’s new vineyard site in Hawkes Bay. The wine has the aroma of citrus peel, flinty minerals and salty seashells. There are creamy, peach-like flavours on the mid-palate, but then it finishes firmly with zesty fresh acidity and a steel backbone.
