2018 Hunting Hill Chardonnay, Kumeu River, Kumeu

Always the most Puligny like in character, the 2018 is no different. Struck-match reduction on the nose, with real focus, and notes of small white flowers, orange blossom, and beautiful pink grapefruit. Very driven, with amazing texture, this is one for the long haul.

2018 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.
