15 MiruMiru™ Reserve
Hunter’s traditional bottle fermented MiruMiru™ Reserve 2015 is blended from Pinot Noir 52%, Chardonnay 43%, and Pinot Meunier 5%.
Stored on lees for over three years the wine has developed a rich complexity which exhibits aromas of biscuit and hazelnut characters. On the palate the wine shows good fruit complexity and balance with excellent richness that carries through to a dry and crisp finish.
The name MiruMiru™ translates to “bubbles” in Maori.

96 Points - Bob Campbell, The Real Review, March 2020 - "A blend of pinot noir, chardonnay and pinot meunier that's been stored on the lees for over three years. Richly-textured méthode with baguette crust and yeast lees flavours supported by citrus, toast and ginger. An impressive wine."

92 POINTS – James Suckling, October 2019 - “This is a crisp and fresh style that offers aromas of fresh bread and glace peaches with hints of lemons and grapefruit. The palate has a fleshy and juicy feel with ripe stone fruit, delivered in a smooth honed style. A blend of pinot noir and chardonnay”
