Premium Kiwi bubbles from this boutique Marlborough producer. Made from 100% Chardonnay, it's beautifully creamy and shows lovely citrus and brioche flavours. An excellent option for when the occasion calls for something a bit special.
The winery writes "Huia Blanc de Blancs is 100% Chardonnay and estate grown. The nose shows fresh citrus and lovely fresh baked bread characters. Light citrus flavours retain freshness on the palate. This hand-crafted sparkling wine is delicious with canapés, freshly shucked oysters, sushi and seafood but really any time is a good time for a glass of bubbles!"
Cameron Douglas MS writes " Seductively complex with aromas of honeysuckle and developed autolysis, white strawberry and apple, some stone fruit moments and mild toasty core. Delicious on the palate with flavours that reflect the nose plus peach and sweet grapefruit, lemon pith and mineral. An elegant mousse, sweet acidity and long finish. Delicious!"
Joelle Thomson writes "The 2017 Huia Blanc de Blancs is a blend of Chardonnay grapes, including the highly regarded Clone 95 and the Hawkesbury Vineyard Clone One. All grapes were handpicked, whole bunch pressed and fermented in small neutral French oak barrels where they evolved into a smooth, full-bodied and soft wine, which was matured for 14 months prior to its second fermentation in bottle. This wine is big, bold and the use of 100% Chardonnay adds both the fresh citrusy appeal and the creamy full body. It is certified organic."
