Value written all over this classy Kiwi Chardonnay
We love well made Chardonnay and this Kiwi version shows just how good the New World gets for not a lot of money.
When it comes to Chardonnay, the folks at Kumeu River make some of the world's finest across the board. They offer great precision of fruit and do a perfect balancing act between the New World and Old World. In fact the wines coming from this North Island Kiwi portfolio have beaten the French at their own game in the tasting of the Kumeu River portfolio versus some of Burgundy's finest. Outside of the quality issue is the pricing issue as well, which Kumeu River wins hands down.
We have just been offered a deal from one of our suppliers on the 2014 Kumeu River Village Chardonnay, the entry level Chardonnay in the Kumeu River portfolio that we think is pretty enticing. For an entry level wine it has the gravitas that makes it stand out on its own. We normally sell this for $19.99 a bottle but we can now offer it for $17.99 a bottle and to sweeten the deal, $15.99 on a six bottle or more purchase. We sell quite a bit of this wine and the new pricing should really make some of our valued customers quite happy. This is a perfect wine for the upcoming holidays, either to enjoy on its own or with food, as well as the perfect gift for someone who loves well made Chardonnay.
