Mumm takes a step into the unknown with Central Otago sparkling

You need to keep your wits about you when you visit a wine retailer nowadays.

When you see a bottle with a G.H. Mumm label, you may expect you are getting a bottle of sparkling wine from one of the world's most high profile Champagne Houses.

But the House of Mumm is a wide- ranging beast.

The Pernod Ricard-owned brand, which dates back to 1827, also has a range of Mumm Terroirs sparkling wines that extends from Marlborough in New Zealand to Tasmania

The Mumm Terroirs series celebrates wine regions known for producing pinot noir, building on Maison Mumm’s almost 200-year history of crafting pinot noir-forward wines

Now G.H.Mumm has announced the release of Mumm Central Otago Blanc de Noirs; the latest addition to the Mumm Terroirs collection.

It is the first time a Champagne house has worked in the Central Otago region to produce a sparkling wine.

As you'd expect, the wines is a bold, flavoursome release that has an RRP of $60. It is not just an aperitif, it can be enjoyed with full flavoured dishes.

Winemaker Jamie Marfell, who is based in Marlborough, has been creating still and sparkling wines for two decades, including from theCentral Otago region.

“Central Otago is the crown jewel when it comes to premium pinot noir in New Zealand, so I was pretty excited to liaise with the best growers in the region when we decided to look at the region for the launch of our third New Zealand sparkling,” he said.

Each of the sparkling wines in the Mumm Terroirs collection celebrates a region’s unique terroir.

The collection includes last year’s excellent Mumm Tasmania Brut Prestige release and, from New Zealand’s Marlborough region, Mumm Marlborough Brut Prestige and Mumm Marlborough Brut Rosé.
