2017 Kumeu River Estate Chardonnay, Hunting Hill


$45.00 $38.25 per Bottle


2 Bottles




"Another fine effort from this terrific vineyard, the 2017 Hunting Hill Chardonnay delivers an array of mellow peach and melon notes, accented by delicate hints of roasted cashews. Medium to full-bodied, it's round, rich, creamy and long, almost decadent in style. Drink it over the next 6-7 years for its plush, languid fruit." Joe Czerwinski, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

"The 2017 Hunting Hill Chardonnay has a very well-defined bouquet of lemon curd, granite, yellow flowers and just a hint of vanilla pod that derives from the François Frères barrels. The precise, detailed palate is well defined with a crisp line of acidity and a harmonious, succinct finish of lemon curd, canned apricot and citrus fruit, all infused with light ginger and minerals. This is a complex, intellectual Chardonnay with a long, bright future ahead. A fabulous Hunting Hill. Tasted at the Kumeu River Chardonnay vertical in London." Neal Martin, Vinous.com

"Attractive red-plum and red-berry aromas here that really impress for both their freshness and ripeness. The palate has a silky, fleshy and generous array of cherry and strawberry flavors, all beautifully balanced. Picked early, ahead of the March rains, this could well be the best Kumeu River pinot release to date! Drink now. Screw cap." JamesSuckling.com

"Cool and introvert nose. Very bracing and textured. But with an undertow of extreme concentration." JancisRobinson.com
