Anthony Gismondi on Wine
Kumeu River Hunting Hill Chardonnaytext

Kumeu River Hunting Hill Chardonnay 2007

Kumeu, North Island, New ZealandLovely open baked pear, spicy lees, nutty, honey, flinty nose with butter, melon and peach flecks. The attack is fresh and dry with juicy, creamy but slightly austere flavours of baked red apple, lime, honey, mango, flinty, vanilla, pear skin and nutty lees flavours all with a stony note. A bit leaner on the finish but with richer extract when compared to Mate's Vineyard. This one needs a bit more tine in bottle but will be an excellent wine in the end.Tasted: 12 May 2012Tasted by: Anthony Gismondi and Stuart TobePrices: NS 48.00 specialty listing ON 45.00 QC 50.00 Producer: Kumeu RiverDistributors: Vintage Corks Limited
