Hunter's Jane Hunter 2014 Marlborough Chardonnay
Fresh, fruity and floral with aromas of white and yellow peach, red apple and hints of white flowers; a light to moderate oak layer adds a touch of complexity and charm. On the palate - dry, lightly creamy and fruity with fresh and lightly roasted stone fruit flavors all laced with a dusting French oak spice; a light leesy and yoghurt like layer adds further complexity; medium+ acidity and a decent length on the finish. Balanced and well made.
3.5 Stars

Hunter's Jane Hunter 2013 Marlborough Pinot Noir
A bouquet filled with aromas of red cherry, plum and red apple skin; a layer of stony mineral adds depth and a little complexity; noticeable oak spices and overall pinosity.
On the palate - dry, firm and youthful with lots of crunch to the light red fruit flavors that reflect the nose with a little cranberry as well; touches of red florals; overall balanced and well made though quite youthful still with medium length and complexity. Will cellar well for another 12 - 18 months or serve with food.
3.5 Stars
