Hunter’s Chardonnay Marlborough

14.99

This is gorgeously complex, subtly nuanced Chardonnay that wouldn’t look out of place as a modern Burgundy. It’s had all the Grand Cru treatment – fermentation and ageing in barrel (20% of those new), lees ageing to bring extra creaminess and mineral freshness to hold it all together. The wine’s extraordinary class comes down to the region, Marlborough, and to Jane Hunter OBE, whose team, headed up by her nephew, the winemaker James Macdonald, is one of the most accomplished in New Zealand. Jane and her late husband founded the estate in the 1970s, one of the first in Marlborough, and hit the world stage with awards in 1984. Every year they win an extraordinary number of Trophies. A great match for roast chicken, salmon or spicy Thai curry
