2011 Huia Blanc de Blanc
Huia makes a fantastic Brut but when the weather is right they also make this Blanc de Blanc which has serious cellaring potential. This is the just-released 2011 vintage which spends a year getting richer, more complex and intense in barrel on less before it is bottled and undergoes secondary fermentation in the bottle. It is then aged another 5 and a half years before it is riddled and disgorged in November. As you can see this wine gets a lot of attention and the result is truly memorable.
Bright and fresh acidity with creamy bubbles, brioche, lime marmalade and a hint of peach. It has a lovely long, fresh, creamy finish.
