“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.”
The Listener Magazine – 5 STARS, December 2020
“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.”
96 Points - 5 Stars - The Real Review - Bob Campbell "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."

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.”

“Kiwi sparkling roses don't come much better than this, a personal favourite of Hunter's own grande dame, Jane Hunter. Bouquet garni, berryfruit scents lure you in; the palate is weighty and complex, rish with fresh baking characters and enlivened by persistent mousse.”
5 STARS - The Listener, Michael Cooper, 7 November 2017
“The classy wine currently on sale is mostly from 2011 base wine, blended from pinot noir (55%), chardonnay (41%) and pinot meunier (4%), and was disgorged after three years of ageing on its yeast lees. Pink/pale orange, it is highly scented, lively, complex and smooth, with strawberryish, peachy, yeasty flavours and a long, dryish, harmonious finish.”

“A ‘classic’ blend of Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, and Pinot Meunier. Bottle-fermented and aged on the lees for 36 months. This is a very classy wine with a pale pink hue, an ethereal texture and an appealing mix of very subtle strawberry and brioche -like yeast lees character.”
4 STARS – Yvonne Lorkin, bobcampbell.co.nz, 12 Jan 2016
“Pretty trout pink colour and boasting a persistent creamy mousse, delicate beading and subtle cranberry, cashew and shewsbury biscuit characters. Elegant and charismatic.”
