Kumeu River Hunting Hill Chardonnay 2017

Variety: Chardonnay
Region: Auckland
Vintage: 2017

The Hunting Hill Chardonnay is beautifully fragrant with its lemon/lime blossom characters and on the nose that typify the lovely perfume we always get from Hunting Hill. The chardonnay shares some of the characters with the Mate’s Vineyard with its attractive floral notes and restrained elegance. From the winemaker, Michael Brajkovich MW. “Hunting Hill is a vineyard that was first planted in 1982 and became a significant part of the original Kumeu River Chardonnay blend. Occupying the slope overlooking Maté’s Vineyard, it has always contributed lovely ripe and rich fruit to the Estate Chardonnay. Hunting Hill was replanted in 2000 and is now even better than before, giving beautifully ripe fruit with a distinctive, mealy minerality.  

Awards:

95 points, Stuart Pigot, jamessuckling.com “Sleek yet polished with stunning concentration and vibrant acidity driving the very long, tight finish. Drink or hold.”

94 points, Joe Czerwinski, Wine Advocate “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. Drink Date: 2019 – 2026.”
