Een geweldige wijn uit een groot jaar

Afkomstig van de koelste wijngaard van het domein (Hunting Hill) en qua stijl de meest 'Bourgondische' van Kumeu's Single Vineyard Chardonnays. Een geweldige wijn uit een groot jaar. Serieuzer, slanker en mineraler dan de Coddington Chardonnay, maar daardoor in z'n jeugd ook minder toegankelijk. Nu drinken kan (uit de karaf), maar de wijn heeft in feite een paar jaar rust nodig om z'n surplus aan finesse aan de oppervlakte te brengen. Op de kaart bij De Librije**, The Jane** en Merlet*.

'High-toned, tight and very sophisticated. The sort of wine that demands comparison with fine white burgundy. Real integrity and depth. Dry (not sweet) and with light grip on the palate. You could drink this now but you shouldn’t; it will so clearly improve, deepen in flavour while retaining its admirable structure and vitality. Much more ‘mineral’ than the Coddington. Real tingle here. I’m sure Michael Brajkovich won’t thank me for the comparison but it does rather remind me in structure of one of Rafael Palacios’s finest Valdeorras single-vineyard bottlings. (And those are the wines that remind me of a great Puligny ...)' (Jancis Robinson, 17,5/20)

Fantastic bouquet - captivating with great depth and complexity, pure and definitive. Flavours of peach and ripe, fleshy apricot, meyer lemon zest and cashew, oak spices and rose-skinned apple. This package then repeats again and again. Contrasting acidity to the pure fruit core, a light saline note adding complexity and charm. Persistent flavours, lengthy finish, complex and urgent. A fantastic wine, ready for the cellar.

Taut, mouth-watering chardonnay in a rather Burgundian style, with a nice blend of fruit, oyster-shell, toast, spice and nutty oak flavours. Good weight and concentration. Accessible now but should respond well to a little bottle age.

This wine manages to walk the tightrope of richness and finesse, and it does so with swagger. It's no surprise that this powerful, highly concentrated Chardonnay was fermented in new oak barrels after a hiatus in 2018 - it certainly has the stuffing to take it. Hunting Hill is Kumeu's most reductive Chardonnay but its influence remains subtle, bringing the merest flint note and added tension to the nectarine and lemon peel flavors. Poised and well judged.
