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 

Raymond Chan: "Bright straw-yellow colour with light golden hues and some depth, a little paler edged. The nose is taut and tightly bound with intense and penetrating aromas of white stone fruits and nectarines, with citrus fruits, along with a layering of spicy, nutty oak, hints of creamy barrel-ferment and some steely mineral elements. Medium-full bodied, the palate has very tightly concentrated flavours of nectarines and white stone fruits, citrus fruits, all entwined with spicy, nutty oak, subtle mealy elements and creamy barrel-ferment. The mouthfeel is refreshing and poised with lacy acidity. The flavours grow in intensity and depth to form a firm core and line. This has excellent drive, energy, tension and linearity, carrying to a very long and sustained finish. This is a tightly concentrated and intensely packed Chardonnay with white stone fruit, peach and citrus fruit flavours, along with spicy oak on a refreshing and poised, driven palate." 5 ***** Stars, 19+/20 points
