“This refined, bright, light - pink wine is a blend of Marlborough Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Pinot Meunier. The bouquet is fragrant and yeasty, the palate complex and finely balanced with strawberryish, peachy, spicy, yeasty flavours. It is dryish and persistent.”
Drinksbiz Magazine – Joelle Thompson, December 2020,
“Winemaker Jane Hunter is a fan of pink bubbly, and her winemaking team produce this one mostly from Pinot Noir, which makes up 55% of the wine with Chardonnay at 42% and Pinot Meunier the remaining 3%. This trio is the classic combination used in the Champagne region. The Hunter's winemakers gave this lively, dry pink bubbles 18 month of bottle age on yeast lees. It contains 6.4 grams of residual sugar per litre and is a deliciously full bodied, dry expression of a sparkling Pinot with beautiful balance, thanks to the Chardonnay.”

“MiruMiru means bubbles in Maori and this wine is one of the finest sparking Roses. A delightful light blush colour in a glass, this wine is complex with beautiful summer berry flavours singing through each sip.”

A classic blend of pinot noir, chardonnay and pinot meunier. Bottle fermented and aged on the lees for 36 months. A delicious sparkler with a hint of strawberry intertwined with fresh, biscuity yeast flavours that are supported by delicately fruity acidity.

“Flavours of fresh and baked light red cherry and strawberry, red apple and a peach tea moment. Fine yeasty autolysis flavours, firm youthful mousse with fine bubbles and dry finish.”

This traditionally bottle fermented wine consists of Pinot Noir (55%), Chardonnay (42%), and Pinot Meunier (3%) and rested on lees for 18 months. Attractive pale salmon colour shows sophistication. Aromas are youthful, clean, pure and precise with wonderful aromas of cranberries, raspberries, strawberries, red cherries and delicate yeasty notes. On the palate it is dry, soft and creamy with abundance of fruit, layered complexity and a pleasant refreshing finish.

"A blend of pinot noir, chardonnay and pinot meunier, with at least 18 months on the yeast lees in bottle. Pale-pink méthode with a seductive tease of berry fruit flavour against a subtle background of toasty yeast lees character. An ethereal texture with a pleasantly dry and surprisingly lengthy finish. A totally charming fizz."

Mid-pink colour. A classic blend of pinot noir, chardonnay and pinot meunier. Bottle-fermented and aged on the lees for 36 months. Crushed strawberry and cherry flavours with some bread crust yeast autolysis characters. A beautifully poised wine – refreshing and flavoursome.
WineNZ Magazine, Simon Nash, Matt Kirby and Barry Riwai, January 2020
Nice pale, salmon pink colour. Bright leafy strawberry nose, good fruit but quite simple, soft, but short. Complex biscuitty, rose, tea leaf, palate is textured and full. Pretty pink, creamy hint of berry, peach, creamy meal, tasty grains, medium length, attractive yeasty finish.
92 POINTS, James Suckling USA, October 2019
“There’s a very attractive core of blood oranges and dark fleshed peaches here with sliced strawberries too. The palate is crisp with the right build of flesh.”
