Mud House Central Otago Pinot Noir
Central Otago
Available by the dozen
An assemblage of superior clones Pinot Noir, picked off the Mudhouse estate vineyard in the Bendigo precinct of Central Otago. A challenging site to grow fruit, vines are planted to three terraces with slightly differing microclimes, encouraging grapes to achieve an allsort of complexity and tannin profile. A measure of whole bunch inclusion builds texture and infuses layers of flavour, a soundly structured and well proportioned Pinot Noir with the palate weight and depth of fruit to accompany traditional roast with root vegetables and red wine Jus.

Free draining loam soils over schist gravel make the property ideal for harvests of outstanding Pinot Noir. The huge diurnal temperature variation adds to the structure and concentration of the wine. Grapes are gently de stemmed, allowing whole berries to remain intact. After a week of cold soak, each parcel is separately vinified through mix of wild and cultured yeasts. Batches are hand plunged for optimal extraction of colour, flavour and tannin. Ferments are pressed into a selection of seasoned and new French oak barrels for completion of malolactic and a term of maturation before assemblage into the finished wine.
 
Ruby red colour. Aromas of dark cherry and berry fruits, spice, floral and dried herbs over a background of well intergrated oak. A smooth palate of dark cherry and bramble flavours, fine tannins in support, before an exquisite finish on a length of lingering black cherry flavours and balanced, raspberry acidity. Match your Mudhouse to twice cooked duckling or truffe et Port Salut soufflé.
Mud House Sauvignon Blanc
Marlborough
Available by the dozen
The secret to success at Mud House is in the way that the talented team finds the courage to do things in their own way. Vinification is carried out to a unique combination of techniques which have crystallized the style of the estate's racey wines. The salubrious soils and favourable growing seasons of Marlborough also play their role. An abundance of sunshine, warm dry days and cool nights, achieve a wine with an amazing range of luscious fruit characters, crisp acidity and exquisite freshness.

A backbone of estate grown Sauvignon Blanc from the Mud House property in Upper Wairau Valley, is vinified alongside harvests from carefully selected grower vineyards in the Awatere, Ure and Wairau Valleys. Each parcel is monitored throughout the ripening so it can be harvested at optimum maturity. Grapes are transported to the winery and crushed with minimal skin contact to avoid juice deterioration. After settling, each batch is vinified at cool temperatures in fermenters through a variety of cultured yeasts to add complexity while retaining fresh fruit characters. Batches are assembled into the final wine shortly after the completion of ferments and prepared for bottling.
 
Pale yellow hues. A vibrant nose reminiscent of spring, passionfruit, snow peas and lemongrass, flintyness and fresh herb herbal notes. A focussed and concentrated palate, soft grapefruit acidity and bold tropical flavours. Rich in mouthfeel, the refreshing acidity leads to a long lingering finish. Match with New Zealand green lipped mussels or pan grilled scallops and asparagus.
Sauvignon blanc that says zing, Pinot noir that seductively whispers spice, and Merlot that plants the word ripe on the tip of your tongue. That’s what Mudhouse live for

When a glass is raised for the first time, it’s a moment full of promise. Living up to the promise is Mudhouse only ambition. If the first sip makes a good impression, they know they’ve done their job right. If it fails to amuse the palate, the winemaking team make a point of going outside and howling at the moon. But seriously, any connoisseur would agree that winemaking is one of the world’s most responsible tasks. It’s up there with making policy decisions at parliament and deciding a child’s name.

While the winemaking at Mudhouse is firmly anchored in the world of microdetail, the team don’t tell tales of pampered grapes, brix levels and the size of the stones beneath the vines. Just take their word for it that they go to extraordinary lengths to get it right every time. When all is said and done, what’s is the only story that matters. When you take the first sip of Mudhouse, it just may bring a smile to your lips. No amount of pontificating about winemaking can say as much as that magical moment.

The superbly pungent and invigorating fruit flavours of Mudhouse Marlborough sauvignon blanc immediately caught the attention of international wine commentators and consumers. Due in no small part to the superlative growing conditions on the estate's Marlborouigh Vineyard at Delta Lake Heights near Renwick in the Upper Wairau Valley, the site is 250 acres of the best fruit growing terrain, clay and loam soils which are planted to Sauvignon Blanc and some Pinot Gris.

Aromatic varietals such as riesling and pinot gris thrive on the Glasnevin Vineyard, just behind the Mudhouse wineworks on State highway 1 in the Waipara Hills. This very special winegrowing region also makes spicy, deliciously rich, well rounded pinot noirs. Shelter provided by the coastal hills to the east is an important feature of Waipara’s grape-growing environment, giving harvest dates 10 days to two weeks earlier than on the Canterbury Plains. Hot nor’westers dry out the soil, taking some of the vigour out of the vines which encourages the development of full ripeness and intensity. Soil types range from gravelly deposits close to the Waipara River, to heavier, limestone-derived clays on the east side of the valley.

Central Otago is famous for vibrant, full-flavoured pinot noir with spicy, cherry-like flavours and a velvety smooth texture. There are few places in the world around the 45-degree latitudes, north or south, with such ideal climate and soil conditions for pinot noir. That’s why Mudhouse are here. Hot summers, cold winters and enormous temperature extremes between day and night create the intense flavours and colour. The vvineyards here have stony sub-soils, with good water drainage, helping to promote ripe, intense, aromatic characters in the finished wine.

Within the family you will discover three labels, Mudhouse, Swan and Hay Maker. At the top end is the elite Swan label, each wine within this range offers small parcel reserve quality. The philosophy is to nurture the grape from vine to wine with as little interference as possible ensuring pure varietal character and flavour. Every year the Mudhouse oenological crew are on the search for the best parcels of fruit they can find, with the intention of crafting a wine good enough to hold the Swan label. Wines branded plainly as Mudhouse represent 90% of total production, they absorb the energy, passion and unflinching devotion to good winemaking. By using a combination of contemporary and traditional methods, Mudhouse are able to meet market demand without sacrificing quality. Every bottle goes out into the world as a highly qualified ambassador for premium New Zealand wine.
