The 2017 Chardonnay shows a bright, flinty nose of nectarine, citrus and hazelnut. The front palate is tightly structured, displaying crisp peach characters and tight, linear acid. The wine is superbly balanced with fresh fruit characters, excellent oak integration all supported with Hunter’s characteristic balanced acidity.
This wine drinks very well on release but will develop and evolve over the next 5-7 years.
