“MiruMiru is Maori for bubbles and also stands for "consistant excellence" among the country's wine judges. Three years on lees has imbued this wine with seductive honeyed, caramelly, toasted qualities. The flavours carry to a long fine finish. A classy, well-crafted bubbly from a top vintage.”
5 STARS - The Listener, Michael Cooper, 7 November 2017
“Elegant and tight-knit, this blend of pinot noir (62%), chardonnay (33%) and pinot meunier (5%) was matured on its yeast lees for more than three years. It has intense, citrusy, yeasty, biscuity flavours, with a long, dry, appetisingly crisp finish.”
5 STARS - North & South, Michael Cooper, December 2017
“This has long been one of Marlborough's best sparklings, matured on its yeast lees for an average of three and a half years. Blended from pinot noir, chardonnay and pinot meunier, the 2013 is a very stylish, tight knit wine, with a crisp, citrusy, yeasty flavours, a dry impression and a lasting, very harmonious finish.”
