Kumeu River Rays Road Chardonnay 2022

Rays Road is Kumeu River’s new vineyard site in Hawkes Bay. This limestone hillside is at 180 m altitude, with a northerly aspect. It is dry-farmed to yield high quality grapes for wine using the Rays Road name.

Hand-harvesting, whole bunch pressing and fermentation with wild yeast in older French Oak barrels to give a wine that is zesty and fragrant, with mineral complexity that is very true to its site.

With the Kumeu River Rays Road chardonnay 2022 vintage it produced a very clean and ripe fruit from this unique site. They are now receiving significant quantities of chardonnay from the new plantings, based on Clones 15 and 548. These allow for a much deeper and more nuanced expression of the chardonnay variety than the existing Clone 95 plantings, but still with the zesty minerality on the palate.

  • Simultaneously, vibrant acidity dances on the taste buds, adding a refreshing and lively character to the overall experience
