2009 Kumeu River Hunting Hill $40

Tight on the nose, reticent at first, with a touch of lip balm and some early berried fruit. This shows huge intensity as it rolls out across the palate with richness and depth, but it remains transparent. There is lovely intensity of pollen, apricot, apple and gentle wood tones, then lemon curd on the mid-palate. Huge length on the finish, which shows mineral, spice and orchard fruit flavors and a huge mineral finale. Awesome wine. 95pts
