“When Dad set out to make great Chardonnay he really only had his sights on making one great wine, Kumeu River Chardonnay - and for many years that's all we made. But, over time single vineyards put up their hands producing special individual expressions. First there was Mate's Vineyard, then Hunting Hill & Coddington and now we've expanded into the Hawke's Bay with our Rays Road Chardonnay and we're very excited to develop a new style of Chardonnay from this unique, high altitude, clay over limestone site.” - Michael Brajkovich MW, winemaker Kumeu River
