Kumeu Cremant (Harvest 2014, bottled 2015, disgorged 2018), Kumeu River N.V.
60% Chardonnay, 40% Pinot Noir, with 3g/l dosage. Bright lemon colour with a lively mousse. Buttered green apples, flint and ripe stone fruit on the nose. The mousse is creamy and generous on the palate. Ripe fruits are subsumed by savoury and earthy elements. Smoky and toasty on the back end with ripe red apple and fleshy pears. Pithy, chalky and dry on the finish.
