Hunter's Miru Miru NV (NV)

'Miru Miru' means 'Bubbles'. This Marlborough wine is disgorged after a minimum of 18 months on its yeast lees (earlier than its Reserve stablemate, below), has a lower Pinot Noir content and a crisper finish. The non-vintage wine (4.5* ) I tasted recently is a blend of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir (mostly), with a splash of Pinot Meunier. Pale straw, it is attractively scented, with vigorous, citrusy, yeasty flavours, showing very good intensity and complexity, and a dryish (7.4 grams/litre of residual sugar), crisp finish. Good value.
