Hunter’s MiruMiru™ Reserve 2013 has maintained its status as New Zealand’s Best Sparkling Wine at the 2018 Champagne and Sparkling Wine World Championships.
2018 is the second year in a row the wine has taken the top spot, and the fourth consecutive year that Hunter’s wines have claimed the title at the elite awards in London. The MiruMiru™ Reserve 2013 also made waves at home last month, picking up the title of Champion Sparkling Wine at the Marlborough Wine Show.
Hunter’s winemaker James Macdonald says he was thrilled with the awards, which recognise the work put in by the winemaking team to maintain quality in the bottle. “The Reserve is our flagship sparkling wine so naturally we put a lot of effort into getting it right. We are always pleased to see that our hard work has paid off,” he says.
The Champagne and Sparkling Wine World Championships is one of the most
respected, comprehensive and rigorous international sparkling wine competition in the world. Each wine entered in the competition is tasted blind, and only wines good enough to receive gold and silver awards are named, indicating that they are truly outstanding wines.
The Marlborough Wine Show was launched in 2011 and aims to showcase the diversity of Marlborough’s wines styles and sub-regions.
