The Hunting Lodge 2018 Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc and Albarino, and 2018 White Mischief


When Brent and Denise Sutton purchased the famous ‘Hunting Lodge’ in Waimauku, north-west Auckland, in 2016, they refurbished the cellar door, café, restaurant, gardens and other facilities. Included in the revitalisation was the making of wine from the ‘Home’ block, and they have engaged the highly respected and experienced Pete Turner to do so, supplementing the estate fruit with that of neighbours and from other regions. The wines to date have been of high quality and interest. Here, I review the 2018 Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc and Albarino, plus the ‘White Mischief’ that follows on from the 2017, it being an undisclosed blend of varieties from undisclosed sources.
