These Wise and Wonderful Unicorn bubbles represent the wisdom and sageness of New Zealand wineries and winemakers to make the best bubbly they can from our pristine vineyards, combining the best winemaking techniques, combination and blends of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, and extensive ageing regimens.
Sparkling wines are an entity unto themselves. They are not as easy to make as still wines yet often do not get the love or attention they deserve. They are held up as poster children or brought out to do their special dance, but these unicorns are definitely to appreciate for everyday.
