2016 Kumeu River Hunting Hill Chardonnay

The most elegant and refined Chardonnay among the Kumeu River range.

FWDC 95/100 Bob Campbell MW 95/100

Description

Overlooking the famous Mates vineyard, Hunting Hill was originally planted in 1982 but replanted with Clone 15 in 2000. These days the wine has achieved legendary status, its refined style and dynamic acid line giving a Chablis-like purity juxtaposed against a creamy and generous mid-palate and a finish that is seemingly endless. World class Chardonnay, this 2016 release is a rock-star from day 1!

Smells

An array of complex aromas including white flowers, peach, almond, jasmine and vanilla, with hints of citrus and mealiness.

Tastes

Supremely pure with a breathtakingly velvety texture, the wine is so confident in its own expression, with no winemaker artifice even hinted at as all the elements melt together into one indescribable whole. Always a rare pleasure to taste, it will be even better after 2020.
