Winemakers Notes

Jane Hunter OBE

The grapes for MiruMiru are picked at optimum fruit ripeness to obtain delicate fruit flavours and particular attention was placed on a good acid/sugar balance of the fruit. The wine is treated by traditional methods, i.e. no sulphur was added so subtle oxidation occurred (the reverse of methods used for treating our table wines) yet one can still pick out the strong Marlborough fruit characters.

Reviews

MiruMiru gets excellent recommendations from these big hitters.

91 Points – James Suckling – “Bright and fresh stone fruit and light, pink berry notes, set in a crisp, fresh palate that has a smooth, berry sorbet finish. A blend of chardonnay, pinot noir and pinot meunier.”

Emma Jenkins MW, The Australian Women’s Weekly (NZ), Jun 2017 – “Good sparkling is a very useful thing to have on hand in a cellar and Miru Miru (Maori for “bubbles”) is a very useful sparkling: vibrantly fresh but with a satisfying richness.”

WineState Magazine, September 2019 Rating: 4 1/2 Stars – “This is very lively, full flavoured, bottle fermented Marlborough bubbly. A blend of Chardonnay (50%), Pinot Noir (46%) and Pinot Meunier (4%). Pale lemon/green, it has rich, peachy, slightly citrusy and appley flavours, toasty notes adding complexity, and a crisp, dryish finish. Good value.”
