Pioneering Hunter’s Estate helped put Kiwi Sauvignon on the map back in 1986. Since then they’ve won shoals of awards not only for this wine, but their whole range. Indeed, their lime fresh dry Riesling has won Trophies galore, three in one vintage!
Marlborough is renowned for its Sauvignon, but judging by this Riesling, the great grape of Germany is clearly right at home there too. Hunter's have excelled with both right from the start. That was over 30 years ago, at a time when Marlborough was known only for barley and sheep. Ernie Hunter arrived in 1979 and by 1982, he and his new wife Jane had set up a winery and won six Golds in their first vintage. Their success story and the stellar rise of this remote wine region is one of the most remarkable in modern times. Today Jane Hunter OBE (with many other accolades to her name) runs the estate with her nephew James MacDonald. With bright apple and fresh lime zip, this 2020 is a great on its own, or with seafood or spicy cuisine.
"This is up there with the traditional Rieslings, good acidity, bold flavours and smells incredible!"
