Description

Overlooking the famous Mate's 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 Puligny Montrachet Premier Cru-like purity juxtaposed against a creamy and generous mid-palate and a finish that is seemingly endless. World class Chardonnay, this 2019 release is a rock-star from day one and be sure to secure your case!

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 2024 through 2029.
