2019 Home Block Sauvignon Blanc
*ICON SAUVIGNON RELEASE*
To celebrate 40 years since our Home Block was first planted we have decided to release our first ever icon Sauvignon Blanc.
Rated 5 Stars by
The hand harvested, low cropped fruit was picked in the cool of the morning, whole bunches where loaded in the press and only the free run juice was sent to stainless steel tanks. The wine shows fresh grapefruit, lime and passionfruit notes. Multi-layered palate of floral and tropical fruit is well supported by the acidity to give this wine a smooth and elegant finish to enjoy. This is an ideal food wine with persistent flavours and great structure.
NZ National Champion - London CSWCC 2019
With so many gold medals, best buys, five stars and recommendations, this bubbly just can’t be argued with, especially for top value. Delightful freshness, ethereal texture; this Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier blend of sparkling is something we couldn’t be more proud of.
2019 Sauvignon Blanc
NEW RELEASE & already a GOLD Medal Winner!
Our 37th year making Sauvignon Blanc, the 2019 Vintage is now ready for release!
2019 vintage was very dry but almost perfect growing conditions, making this one of our best Sauvignon Blanc’s in years - you be the judge!
2019 Pinot Noir Rosé
100% Pinot Noir, Hunter’s Rosé shows a traditional pale pink colour which alludes to the fresh summer berry aromas of strawberry, raspberry and red plum. The palate is full and round with a long crisp finish. The mouthfeel is wonderful and expresses summer to the senses.
We love this wine lightly chilled served as an aperitif or with fresh summer foods such as seafood, salads and Mediterranean dishes.
In 2019 the Gewürztraminer yields were the lowest we have ever seen. This has resulted in a wine with great concentration and depth. Our Gewürztraminer shows classic lychee and ginger characters on the nose.
The palate is dry to taste and very focused. We avoid the typical oily varietal characters thanks to the alluvial soils of this vineyard. This wine reward cellaring for the next 10 years.
Well balanced wine that finishes strong with some minerality that lingers on the palate. The palate is soft but focused with a dry finish. The wine displays excellent fruit purity together with fine texture.
WineNZ Magazine, October 2019 “Faintest golden hue, lemon and grapefruit with a touch of clover honey, good intensity on the nose”
2018 Grüner Veltliner
Excellent - Mark Henderson - Otago Daily Times
Grüner Veltliner is a grape native to Austria that is now gaining popularity in Australia, USA and New Zealand. Our handpicked fruit was sourced from a single site in the Awatere Valley. 60% of the fruit was whole bunch pressed and run immediately to oak.
The wine shows elegant flavours on the nose with fresh aromas of white stone fruits and citrus undertones. Dry to taste, the palate has rich and lush character of peach and ripe pear.
New Zealand Favourite
Our best selling drop in New Zealand, we are really proud of our 2018 Chardonnay. 100% barrel fermentation, the wine is superbly balanced with fresh fruit characters, excellent oak integration all supported with Hunter’s characteristic balanced acidity
2014 Pinot Noir
Gold Medal Winner // We have done the Cellaring for you!
Cellar Release Wine, this Pinot Noir 2014 shows rich ripe plum, berry and subtle forest floor aromas marry together for a smooth medium body. The palate shows persistent rich cherry/plum flavours and mild spicy oak.
20% new, 80% 1-4 year old French oak barrels | 11 months barrel ageing | 15% whole bunch ferment | indigenous yeast

2018 Offshoot Chardonnay
*New Vintage Release*
This new Offshoot range allows the younger generation of Hunter's to experiment with new techniques and presentation.
A brilliant golden colour, the 2018 Offshoot Chardonnay shows a layered nose of nectarine and apricots, with a hint of nuttiness and pencil shaving oak notes. Stonefruit continues through to the palate where the soft elegant mouthfeel integrates beautifully with the French oak. The wine can be enjoyed now but will also develop and evolve over the next 5 years.
2019 Offshoot Pinot Noir
This wine is a bit of fun. It is designed to be a fresh, fruit forward wine with lot’s of character. It is ready to drink now and can even go in the fridge. The nose shows cherry, beetroot and dates. The palate is soft, juicy and rich. The wine is balanced by a herbal, stemmy character.
2019 Offshoot Pét Nat Sauvignon Blanc
"Thoroughly decent party juice." - James Suckling 2019
Offshoot Sauvignon Blanc is different from the rest, this Pet Nat (pétillant naturel) was bottled whilst still fermenting to create a naturally carbonated sparkling wine.
Techniques can be compared to a Coopers beer or an apple cider, this wine is naturally cloudy, with sediment, which is a result of the natural fermentation in bottle.
It contains minimal sulphites and is perfect served cold on a summer afternoon in the sun!
