Kumeu River

Estate Chardonnay

At low $30’s this was top value but at low $40’s its about right. Broad across the palate; same oaky, mealy, lees as the single vineyard bottlings but the tightness and austerity is replaced with more immediately approachable sweet melon fruit. Good lick of acid gives the balance needed. Very solid. — 7 days ago

Kumeu River

Hunting Hill Chardonnay 2016

Serious wine. Easily Burgundy 1er cru level in terms of size, structure, and complexity. Oak influence is strong on both the nose and palate, but it is perfectly balanced with the fruit, and the steely struck match smokiness. Citrus, stone fruit, mineral, mixed with caramel and brioche notes. Very long and built to last. Impressive and worth every penny of A$66. — 14 days ago
