Possibly the most complete Hunting Hill Chardonnay I've tasted in youth, the 2020 provides a harmonious, melt-in-your-mouth impression. It has breadth and concentration but retains a sense of elegance on the midpalate before finishing with precision and length. Yes, there's a little bit of flint character too, but then Hunting Hill is known to be reductive; give it time. Like Forrest Gump, it runs through a finish line and keeps on going effortlessly. There's no box of chocolates here, though; it's all white nectarine, citrus, white flowers and a touch of smoked nuts. Rebecca Gibb MW, Vinous

Weighty, textural chardonnay with an array of subtle citrus, oyster-shell and stone fruit flavours. A bold, complex wine with impressive drive and obvious longevity. Chardonnay with gravitas. Bob Campbell MW
