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.

In The Cellar
This Chardonnay was hand-harvested, whole bunch pressed and fermented 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.

In The Vineyard
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 under the Rays Road name for our Kumeu River label.
Aromas of citrus and white pear with notes of mineral and a slightly saline character. Medium-bodied with a lightly creamy texture well-balanced with a crisp acidity. Elegant and precise with a long finish.
