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 2020 release is a rock-star from day one and be sure to secure your case! A little closed right now, but given 5-8 years in the bottle, this will blow all your expectations, personally I cannot wait….

Smells

An array of complex aromas including white flowers, peach, nectarine, red apple, almond, jasmine, freshly churred butter, 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, fruit, and elegance to perfection. A rich, oily palate with chalky, stone suck acidity but perhaps showing a little too much oak right now but given a few years the integration will be nothing but sublime. Always a rare pleasure to taste, it will be even better after 2024 through 2030+.
