Kumeu River Hunting Hill Chardonnay 2021 New Zealand (6x75cl)
Kumeu River Hunting Hill Chardonnay, 2021, New Zealand (6x75cl)
This is one of four Chardonnays from the World famous New Zealand producer, Michael Brajkovich MW, founder of Kumeu River.
Michael coincidentally, was the first person in New Zealand to qualify as a 'Master of Wine' whose wines shot to fame largely we believe, because of the imitation of Burgundian wine making techniques which he has mastered to work in his environment.
Hunting Hill is often thought to be in the shadow of Maté's Vineyard Chardonnay but the vines are now approaching 20 years old and the once sinewy juice is taking on breadth and gorgeous character.
There is no doubt that this wine will age beautifully and perhaps it should not be opened for a year, or two... If you are not blessed with patience then opening and even decanting might help, but the real key is to let the wine warm up in the glass! It will be very grateful and open up beautifully....
