Stunning Photos of Kumeu River’s 2013 Harvest

By

Recently I received these fantastic photos from Michael and Paul Brajkovich from Kumeu River, source of our Exhibition New Zealand Chardonnay and perhaps the finest producers of chardonnay in the country.

These pictures were taken on 12th March at their Hunting Hill vineyard, where Paul Brajkovich says ‘Quality is outstanding but unfortunately the quantity very low due to spring frost. As you can see… the fruit is beautiful (pity we do not have more of it!). ’ Michael echoed these sentiments: ‘Everything looking really good here if very small. 2013 has potential to be even better than 2010!’

    I have always enjoyed the special quality of Kumeu River Chardonnay…these pictures show how Man is helping Nature to produce its best.

    I have not tasted this wine but given the evocative pictures above – especially the man with a full bucket, peering out from under the vines – it’s next on my list
