5 Stars – Winestate Recent Releases, Michael Cooper, July/August 2022 issue
Hunter’s Miru Miru Reserve 2017
Marlborough, New Zealand
A blend of Pinot Noir 57%, Chardonnay 34%, and Pinot Meunier 9%. Stored on lees for over three years the wine has developed a rich complexity with a full creamy texture on the palate. Aromas of biscuit and nutty characters of almond and hazelnut on the nose. The palate exhibits layers of white peach and citrus characters with apple notes on the end palate. The wine shows fruit complexity and balance with excellent richness that carries through to a dry and crisp finish.
The name MiruMiru™ translates to “bubbles” in Te Reo Māori.
