2016 Hunting Hill Chardonnay, Kumeu River, Kumeu

The 2016 Hunting Hill seems like Premier Cru Puligny-Montrachet in disguise. It's taut and tightly wound at the moment, with perfectly coiled acidity and a smoky, gunflint character. There's such vivacity and life here: while still a baby, the potential is amazing.

2016 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.
