The Brajkovich family and Kumeu River Wines is a story that parallels the New Zealand wine industry. From the pioneering days to the establishment of the New Zealand wine industry to today, the Brajkovich family have been internationally recognised as producing world class wine. The Brajkovichs are focused on and internationally recognised as producing world class Chardonnay. Mates vineyard has become an icon and must-have for any Chardonnay/fine wine collector! Kumeu River Wines encompasses 30 hectares of vineyards, which are predominantly clay soils overlying a sandstone base. These soil types 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.
The Kumeu River Kumeu Crémant is a delicious dry sparkling that has impressed all that have tasted the wine. As the saying goes, there should always be a bottle of bubbles in the fridge for a special occasion …sometimes that special occasion is that you have a bottle of bubbles in the fridge!
