Comments
The Mud House Single Vineyard range is made with minimal intervention to be a true representation of the vintage and the vineyard. When the grapes for this Pinot Noir reached optimal ripeness they were hand harvested then gently destemmed. After a week long cold soad, each parcel was fermented using indigenous yeast and hand plunged to extract vibrant colour, flavour and delicate tannin structure. The wine was then separately pressed into a mix of new and old French oak barrels to mature for 12 months. Natural malolactic fermentation began at the beginning of spring.
