Hunter’s Winemaker Inus van der Westhuizen attended An Evening of Sparkling Wine at Wellington’s Logan Brown Restaurant during the summer.
Hosted by Méthode Marlborough, the five-course degustation dinner was put on to celebrate Marlborough’s méthode traditionelle wines, with two paired to each course.
Hunter’s MiruMiru™ Reserve 2013 was paired with the fifth course, a strawberry panna cotta, ginger
brioche, cream wafer and Billy Scott Strawberries. Hunter’s have been involved with Méthode

Sparkling wine made in the traditional method, of a second fermentation in the bottle followed by an
intricate riddling and disgorging process, produces the finest and most persistent bead, as well as complex flavours, Inus says.
The sell-out dinner was the latest of many hosted by Méthode Marlborough as part of their endeavour to educate the public about the quality of Marlborough’s sparkling wines.
