Wow - the 2011 Hunting Hill Chardonnay shows off an incredible nose of exotic fruits, spices and savories including mango, guava, pineapple paste and yeast extract over touches of brioche, cashews, fresh ginger, cinnamon toast and coriander seed with a whiff of honeysuckle. Medium to full-bodied, rich and seductive in the mouth, this Chardonnay is one for the hedonists as it offers an array of tropical fruit and spice flavors balanced by racy acidity and a finish with great length. Drink it now to 2021+.

The vineyard that sits above Mate's Vineyard, and this has immense verve and energy, offering intense grapefruit citrus and nectarine, with some flint and stony, chalky notes. The palate is taut and full of excitement and tension. Terrific acidity drives concentrated fruit flavor along. It winds tight and pithy through the finish. Drink now.

Slightly muted, earthy savoury nose with limestone and lemon, hairy peaches and wet chalk. Palate is bright and expressive, crystalline and pure, quite saline and maritime with brightness and precision. Beautiful.

Not bad at all! Very fine in fact. Not quite the mellifluous fruit of other vintages and a tiny bit lacking fruit in the middle but a very good wine. Very long.

The abundant fresh herbs and wet ferns on the nose take this a long way from this producer's burgundian model. Very elegant, medium-bodied palate, the limey acidity giving this a major lift at the long finish. Drink or hold. Screw cap.
