Hunter's Miru Miru Reserve (2015)

This has long been one of Marlborough's best sparklings, full and lively, with loads of peachy, yeasty, nutty flavour, and a creamy, long finish. It is matured on its yeast lees for an average of three and a half years. The 2015 vintage (5*) is a blend of Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Pinot Meunier, principally (60 per cent) barrel-fermented. Full of personality, it is bright, light yellow/green, with an inviting, scented, complex bouquet. Crisp and dryish (6 grams/litre of residual sugar), it has excellent vigour and richness, with a lasting finish.
