The JamesSuckling.com Wine of the Year 2021 goes to ... the Kumeu River Chardonnay Mate's Vineyard 2020!
Here, James and the Tasting Team tell Michael and Paul Brajkovich the good news – that out of about 25,000 wines, their sterling Chardonnay came top.
"That's amazing!" Michael Brajkovich says on accepting congratulations from James. "We saw there was an announcement coming out and we thought we might be somewhere up there in that high ranking, but not at the top. That's fantastic!"
