STORY BEHIND THIS WINE
Hunting Hill exhibits steely, driven mineral qualities akin to Puligny Montrachet and is best enjoyed with bottle age or decanting. The vines, planted in 2000, have achieved a 20 year maturity by the current vintage; a milestone revealed in the deeper characteristics of recent vintages. Farr Vintners praises this wine above others, as seen in 2020; embodying the classical hallmarks of Hunting Hill with its limey fruit, cutting acidity, and mineral intensity. Its pithy and grippy texture highlights its aging potential, slowly revealing a multidimensional complexity that rivals those of Premier and Grand Crus from the Côte de Beaune.
