Light struck-match nose and then quite opulent fruit on the palate. Tense and vibrant. Very long.

    Press reviews:
    The Wine Advocate: "The voluminous yet weightless 2016 Hunting Hill Chardonnay continues this bottling's successful run of vintages. Hints of roasted cashew accent tropical fruit, but thanks to a zesty line of citrusy acids, the wine powers forward without ever seeming overly broad or heavy. It simply coats the mouth with a stunning array of complex flavors, lingering gently on the finish." 95 points 
     

    Jancis Robinson MW: “Light struck-match nose and then quite opulent fruit on the palate. Tense and vibrant. Very long. The most appealing 2016 so far. Drink now-2031.” 17.5 points
