The Brajkovich family and Kumeu River Wines is a story that is follows the New Zealand wine industry. From the early days to the establishment of the wine industry to today, the Brajkovich family have been internationally recognised as producing world class wine.

Kumeu River Wines encompasses 30 hectares of vineyards, predominantly clay soils overlying a sandstone base. These soil types help are ideal in that they retain sufficient water at depth, even during the summer months, to ensure the deep vine roots continue to hydrate the vine without excessive vigour. Therefore, the vineyard doesn’t require irrigation, a factor that is critical to the quality of Kumeu River’s grapes. One of the distinguishing factors of Kumeu River’s wines is all of the grapes are harvested by hand so sub-standard grapes are removed resulting in a net yield of purely high-quality grapes.

16.5 JR. On the nose I can certainly see why Michael Brajkovich describes this as 'flinty', though on the palate it's quite fruity but it's a tad more Loire than Marlborough. Punchy, bright fruit and not a little lime-juice sensation. Still just a little chewy on the end. Bone dry and appetising. Pretty good!
