Kumeu River Hunting Hill Pinot Noir (2019)

Grown on the slopes above Mate's Vineyard, directly over the road from the winery at Kumeu, the impressive 2019 vintage (4.5*), barrel-matured for a year, is a rare example of classy Pinot Noir from the Auckland region. Already very expressive, it is a deep ruby, sweet-fruited red, with generous, youthful plum, cherry and spice flavours, seasoned with nutty oak, and fine, supple tannins. Best drinking 2023+.
