Huia 2009 Brut

Marlborough, New Zealand

Rating: 14/20


Hailing from New Zealand’s Wiarau plains, this sparkling wine is 58 percent Chardonnay and 42 percent Pinot Noir and made using the traditional method, where the second fermentation process occurs in the bottle. The 2009 Brut has fine, bead-like bubbles and offers aromas of citrus and baked bread. The palate is crisp with flavors of strawberry and peach that lead to a creamy, dry finish reminiscent of toast.
