Robert Parker 95P
The 2015 Hunting Hill Chardonnay displays a youthful restraint, yet nonetheless delivers an exciting array of stone fruit, pink grapefruit, ginger and marzipan notes with subtle hints of orange blossoms, crushed stones and lightly buttered toast. Medium bodied and tightly woven, is has a lively backbone supportting the generous flavor layers, finishing with great length and depth. As usual - just gorgeous!
Som Gastro skrev om Hunting Hill
Der er tale om en tæt, gylden chardonnay - næsten stærkt koncentreret i smagen, fed og nøddeagtig, og den rundes af med en mundrensende syre.
Det er en KÆMPE vin - og skruelåget ødelægger ikke helhedsindtrykket.
There are few brothers that can successfully run a business together without going Cane and Abel on each other - but Paul (marketing), Michael (winemaking) and rarely seen Milan (vineyards) Brajkovich at Kumeu River make an amazing team. Mind you, having met their strong-willed mother Melba (managing director) it is clearly the boss, who's been with the estate not to mention the workers from the beginning, keeping them in line. If you can taste history, duty and family pride in a glass, it's there in the Kumeu River Chardonnays. Either that or it's the years of continual improvement from trials, failures, successes and all the experience and determination that goes with sheer grind. Melba's late husband, Mate (pronounced Matty), started this winery in the 1940s. "We planted a lot of different varieties," Paul told me. "The Chardonnay came out as a star early-on." Sixty odd years on and the brothers have progressed their father's life's work, now producing some of New Zealand's greatest Chardonnays, not to mention the world's.
