Aspirants of the great Black Blass Label fables of 1974, 1975 and 1976, are privately advised to avail themselves of John's Blend, Cabernet or Shiraz.

At Kumeu River, the winemakers are particularly careful in selecting only the very best grapes for their wines. Yields are kept low to improve the concentration of aromas and flavours, faulty berries are removed in the field. The exclusively hand picked grapes are whole bunch pressed and treated to an indigenous yeast vinification. Some or all of the wine may be fermented in French oak barriques, the balance may be fashioned to enhance varietal freshness. Upon completion of ferments and a course of full malolactic, components are assembled into the finished wine, aimed at accentuating the ripe peach and melon characters of Chardonnay.
Pale yellow colour. Very attractive lifted fruit aromas, along with a touch of nuttiness, the hint of hazelnut that's so very Chardonnay. Characters of grapefruit and lemons, cashews, leesy with a dollop of cream. The palate also shows a nice peachy ripeness along with a crisp flinty character that gives the wine a refreshing cleansing quality. Perfect alongside fishes and crustacea.
