2015 Hunting Hill Chardonnay, Kumeu River, Kumeu

Such is the power of Hunting Hill, this is a sleeper on the nose, but the core of golden fruit slowly revealing itself is undeniable. The palate has a wave of glycerol-rich fruit and saline edge - all the components are here on the palate in abundance. Lacy, pithy finish and and impressive length.

2015 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.
