Pinot Noir 864
Hazeldene Vineyard
Oakridge

JamesSuckling.com -
This has an entrancing nose of ripe raspberries, dark strawberries and red cherries, as well as pomegranate, blood oranges, exotic and fresh-ground spices and pristine perfume. So luxuriant. There’s a lot to take in. The palate has superior fleshy depth and very fluid mesh-like tannins that wrap long and complete. Cage-like. It delivers such freshness and depth of flavour. This is a triumph.

Chardonnay 864
Funder and Diamond Vineyard
Oakridge

JamesSuckling.com -
Very impressively struck purity and power here in this top-flight Oakridge chardonnay. It has a nose of flinty grapefruit, white peaches, lemon pith and wet stony minerals. The palate carries mouth-watering acidity, which is cast alongside powerfully fleshy fruit. Long, chiselled and deeply intense. There is richness building up at the finish.

Pinot Noir
Escarpment

Wine Spectator -
Dusty white pepper and rose petal notes are aromatic, leaping out of the glass to complement the dense core of mineral-laced dark fruit flavours, with plenty of anise and nutmeg details. The intensity gains momentum on the finish, which is expressive and generous.

Pinot Noir

Wine Spectator -
Vibrant, with blood orange and plum flavours that are juicy and expressive. Mineral and herb notes linger in the background. Dense, muscular tannins provide the framework.

Pinot Noir
Escarpment

Antonio Galloni -
Deep red with ruby tones. More anise and herbs on the nose than the basic bottling, along with raspberry and a hint of fresh dill. Broad, sweet and fine-grained, with the enticing raspberry fruit component complicated by herbs, spices, earth and minerals. Really spreads out to dust the palate without leaving any impression of weight. Finishes with a youthful edge and noteworthy energy. This essentially generous wine is kept firm in the early going by its stem component.

Wine Spectator -
Dense and concentrated, with herb and cola accents to the tangy berry and plum flavours. Dark and brooding, with date nut bread, tobacco and baking spice details lingering on the finish.

This is a TOP NZ Chardonnay address!
These fabulous wines are at the same quality level of many of the best White Burgundies but are a fraction of the price of their old world counterparts.

Chardonnay
Hunting Hill Vineyard
Kumeu River

RP/Joe Czerwinski -
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 flavours, lingering gently on the finish.

Chardonnay
Mate's Vineyard
Kumeu River

RP/Joe Czerwinski -
Maté's is usually the tightest, most linear of the KR Chards, and that's again the case. The 2016 Mate's Vineyard Chardonnay is marked by smoky new oak, but there's also pineapple and grapefruit notes that create a crisp, acidic spine. Draped off of that are hints of white peaches, roasted hazelnuts and tangerine. There's an almost briny zestiness to the lingering finish that sets it apart from the winery's other single-vineyard bottlings.
2016 £32.00 RP94
