Kumeu River 2016 Hunting Hill Chardonnay (Kumeu)

#46 Enthusiast 100 2018
Return to List

This single-vineyard wine hums on the nose but sings on the palate. Aromas of roasted, salted nuts, delicate orange and lemon peel seem to float in midair. On the palate, the toasty oak may be in plain view, but it's beautifully balanced by river stone minerality, crystalline acidity and a satiny mouthfeel that never seems to end. Drink now–2025.
