Kumeu Hunting Hill Chardonnay 2017

7,92300

Another fine effort from this terrific vineyard, the 2017 Hunting Hill Chardonnay delivers an array of mellow peach and melon notes, accented by delicate hints of roasted cashews. Medium to full-bodied, it’s round, rich, creamy and long, almost decadent in style. Drink it over the next 6-7 years for its plush, languid fruit.

Description

• Recently in a blind tasting of 30 Great Chardonnay’s from around the world, including top Burgundy Grand Cru, with a couple of Le Montrachet’s in the lineup, Kumeu River came in the top 3… at less than 1/20th the price of the Top Burgundies and other top California Chardonnay’s.
• A few months hence, Kumeu River’s Paul Brajkovich conducted a comprehensive retrospective Vertical tasting, prompting Jancis Robinson, amongst the other tasters gathered, to remark, “Why should I drink expensive white Burgundy!”
