The 2015 Hunting Hill Chardonnay displays a youthful restraint, yet nonetheless delivers an exciting array of stone fruit, pink grapefruit, ginger and marzipan notes with subtle hints of orange blossoms, crushed stones and lightly buttered toast. Medium bodied and tightly woven, is has a lively backbone supportting the generous flavor layers, finishing with great length and depth. As usual – just gorgeous!

Intense and smoky. Very dense and juicy. So captivating immediately.

The 2015 Hunting Hill Chardonnay has to shrug off a bit of reduction, eventually revealing a gorgeous bouquet of lemon curd, yellow flowers and lime, very focused and brimming with vigor. The palate is extremely well balanced with a perfectly pitched line of acidity. This just seems to have a natural flow from start to finish and feels very long. Superb. Tasted at the Kumeu River Chardonnay vertical in London.
