Weergaloze wijn die net zo'n bijzondere ervaring biedt als het beste uit de Bourgogne. "This is a pleasurable, exciting, fleshy, complex, salty, kaleidoscopic wine." (Robert Parker's Wine Advocate, 95+/100)

"Intensiteit, complexiteit en finesse"

Van zeer goed naar groots, dat is het pad dat je bewandelt als je van de Coddington Chardonnay naar de Hunting Hill gaat. De intensiteit, de complexiteit, de graad van verfijning, alles is bij Hunting Hill van een ander niveau. Hier ervaar je de opwinding die we associëren met het beste uit de Bourgogne. Lange tijd was de positie van de Mate's Vineyard Chardonnay als het absolute hoogtepunt in het repertoire van Kumeu River onomstreden maar de laatste jaren steekt Hunting Hill zijn grote broer nadrukkelijk naar de kroon. Wat een weergaloze wijn is dit. Niet bedoeld om nu al te drinken maar om straks, in volle glorie, van te genieten.

Chardonnay van de Hunting Hill Vineyard in de regio Kumeu. Handpluk, spontane vergisting en 11 maanden rijping op Frans eiken (25% nieuw).

"Complex and alluring bouquet, layers of spice and mineral, core white fleshed fruits and lees mineral complexities. As the wine opens out in glass and warms a little, the mouthfeel, fruit and floral tones blossom and expand. Fantastic texture and length, persistent mouthfeel, a cashew nut butter note, barrel spice moments and synergies from the collection of attributes and inputs. Lengthy, taut and complex. A wine for the cellar still. Best from 2025 through 2035+." (Cameron Douglas MS, 97/100)

The 2022 Chardonnay Hunting Hill is an impressive, focused style. It has a sense of energy, being almost buoyant with the movement of a skimming stone across your palate. There's a powerful core of fruit here and it has plenty of substance within its no-more-than medium-bodied core before kerpow! It fires home with an almost spicy kick. Clever oak use, reminiscent of toasted nuts, meets restrained flavors of lemon and lime bitter and nectarine fruit. A wine that's still in its cocoon so give it time. It may even have the edge of Maté's... Big call.

The 2022 Hunting Hill Chardonnay is mouthfilling and obvious in its outlay of flavor in the mouth—yellow peach, apricot, Golden Delicious apple, beeswax/lanolin and ripe lime flesh. The flutter of acidity that feathers the fruit is compelling and alluring in its power and juiciness. An exciting wine. It's a wine I want to drink (I will; the perks) and a wine I am enjoying considering too. It's intellectual and sensorial/corporeal in equal measure. The Hunting Hill Vineyard was planted in 1982 and overlooks Mate's Vineyard. This is a pleasurable, exciting, fleshy, complex, salty, kaleidoscopic wine. Excellent. Recommended.

Cooked apple and lemon curd with hints of pie crust and sweet biscuit. Some kiwi undertones. Medium-bodied with creamy texture and a flavorful finish. Drink now. Screw cap.

Fragrant, aromatic chardonnay with slightly green tree fruit flavours, citrus/lime and a backbone of nicely integrated and pleasantly vibrant acidity that helps drive a lengthy finish. A smattering of nutty yeast lees adds extra interest.

25% new oak. Lemon drops are found in grapes tasted by Michael Brajkovich apparently and also in the wine. The price is edging closer to Maté’s. Tense and racy and tight – sort of Chassagne/St-Aubin border?! More obvious acid and tension than in the other Kumeu River Chardonnays. You could definitely enjoy it already if you liked a leaner style but it would benefit from further ageing ideally.
