HUNTER’S NON VINTAGE MIRUMIRU™
The name MiruMiruTM translates to mean “bubbles” in Maori
Winemaker’s Notes:
The fruit was gently pressed with low litres per tonne extraction. The resultant juice was fermented in stainless steel tanks before undergoing full malolactic fermentation. The Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier parcels were kept separate, blending just before tirage.
The nose exhibits light yeasty characters with peach and citrus aromas. An elegant palate showing a blend of peach/citrus chardonnay components followed by the light berry fruits of the pinot noir. The mouth filling mousse completes the palate that is full and persistent.
Technical Details

Lot Number: L7112
Vintage Conditions:
There was cool weather during the flowering/fruit set period of December resulting in lower yields than normal because of the bunch weights. There were very good ripening months in February and March which allowed the lower crops to reach their optimum sugar levels with good strong flavour profiles.
Vinification:
The grapes were picked at optimum fruit ripeness to obtain delicate fruit flavours and particular attention was placed on a good acid/sugar balance of the fruit.
The wine was treated by traditional methods, i.e. no sulphur was added so subtle oxidation occurred (the reverse of methods used for treating our table wines) yet one can still pick out the strong Marlborough fruit characters.

Gleaming white gold hue with a continuous fast stream and sustained froth. Biscuity nose, complex aromas, dried flowers and orchard fruit, lemon peel and minerals. Confident structure in the mouth, deliciously pure and tense, the layers of complexity keep on coming. Fabulous length. This is a really precise and fantastically presented wine.

We are proud to announce that Hunter’s MiruMiru NV has been awarded Gold Best in Class at the IWSC 2010.
