 Hunters 2018 Offshoot Chardonnay

 GOLD Medal - Royal Easter Show (February 2021)

93 points - Candice Chow, Wine Reviews (February 2021)

 Bright, yellow-gold colour, slightly lighter edged. The nose is gently full and complex; nuances of nuts, butter, struck match are in well-proportioned, underlying stonefruit. Medium-full bodied, vibrant aromas of peaches, nectarines along with citrus interweave hazelnut, pencil shavings and whipped butter. The flavours are voluminous and well-proportioned, taut acid persists on the palate, providing freshness and carry flavours to a lengthy finish. This is a voluminous Chardonnay with complex flavours and a taut acid tension. Match with roasted pork and fowl over the next 5 years.

Hunters 2020 Rose

93 points, 5 stars - Sam Kim, Wine Orbit (January 2021)

It’s instantly appealing on the nose showing Gala apple, fig, nectarine and white floral aromas with a hint of sweet strawberry. The palate displays elegant weight and beautifully rounded mouthfeel combined with juicy fruit flavours and refreshing acidity, finishing long and delightfully tasty. At its best: now to 2022.

Hunters 2019 Chardonnay

93 points - Cameron Douglas MS (January 2021)

No mistaking the power of fruit and oak in harmony on the nose - peach and sweet baking spices, apples and brazil-nut, vanilla and toasty barrel. Full-bodied, toasty, oaky and fruity on the palate with flavours reflect the bouquet of fruit and woody attributes, warming alcohol and refreshing acidity. A lovely wine ready to enjoy upon purchase and through 2023+.

 Hunters 2020 Sauvignon Blanc

94 points - Cameron Douglas MS (January 2021)

Vibrant, distinctive and pungent bouquet with aromas of sweet grapefruit, apple, pith and sweet hay. There’s a mix of fresh herbs with topical fruits and a stony mineral-water scent. Delicious on the palate with flavours of passion-fruit and pineapple, pacific rose apple flesh and lemon. Fresh herbs and mineral are persistent as is the acidity and saline effect. As always extremely well made with a long finish. What’s not to like?

Hunters 2020 Pinot Gris

93 points – Cameron Douglas MS (January 2021)

No mistaking the core varietal drive in the bouquet - quince and pear, citrus and spice, honeysuckle and white flowers. There’s a light leesy aroma adding complexity and depth. Off-dry with contrasting acidity, silky texture and flavours of tree fruit to reflect the nose. Well made, balanced and ready to enjoy upon purchase and through 2022.
