2014 Hunting Hill Chardonnay, Kumeu River, Kumeu

This is classic – if super-charged – Hunting Hill, with the slight reductive quality that you always seem to get from this excellent vineyard well balanced with lemon and lime notes and enchanting minerality. This is the tightest wound of the 2014s at this stage, but I fully expect it to be a stunner in a few years’ time.

2014 Hunting Hill Chardonnay, Kumeu River, Kumeu
Kumeu River

Called “White Burgundy in Kiwi clothing” by Neal Martin and "an Auckland Pearl" by Julia Harding MW, no New World producer has received such critical acclaim over the last few years as Kumeu River. It’s no surprise: this is a New Zealand Chardonnay producer crafting wines of Grand Cru quality at village wine prices. And the connection to Burgundy is apt: these wines are dead ringers for top white Chassagne-Montrachet, Puligny-Montrachet or Meursault, without losing their own sense of identity.
