A continued evolution in style towards a more delicate and textural Chardonnay. The nose shows delicate citrus and white stonefruit with a hint of oak and sulphide lift. The palate has the generosity of Chardonnay in a toned down form. The fruit is balanced well with the fresh acidity and slight textural element from extended time on yeast lees
Huon Hooke, The Real Review
95 Points - Subtle, balanced, nutty bouquet, a trace of rubber, with good complexity and detail, the palate soft and round, refined and elegant, a lovely complete wine. Excellent. Finesse and character. A more pared-back style, and low in alcohol. Not very Hunter-like.
4.5 starts out of 5 - A fresh powerful, but restrained white peach style with a subtle lees influence. The palate is intense and well structured, with subtle oak. 30% new French oak. 100% basket pressed.
