2015 Mud House Claim 431 Central Otago Pinot Noir "Shelter, altitude and warmth are key to this wine, which winemaker CleightenCornelius made from grapes grown in Bendigo, one of the warmest areas of Central Otago. This wine is dry and medium-bodied with intense red fruit and dried fruit flavours. 17.5/20" Drinksbiz June/July 2017
2015 Mud House Single Vineyard Claim 431 Pinot Noir "Light, fresh and fruity pinot noir with pure cherry, plum and berry flavours plus a silken, creamy texture. A charming and appealing wine that's ready to drink, although a little bottle age will do it no harm. Good value at this price". Bob Campbell The Real Review 6 April 2017
2015 Mud House Single Vineyard Claim 431 Pinot Noir - 90/100 "Medium to full red colour with a good tint of purple. The bouquet is fragrant, spicy and cherry-like, as is the taste. It's quite deep and sinewy, flavoursome and has a gritty tannin backbone. Quite mouth-filling and deep, with a lasting aftertaste". Real Review Huon Hooke 15 May 2017
"A subtle, but appealing nose of dried flowers, ripe fruit and a beguilling earthiness. Silky entry and mouthfeel with youthful raspberry and red fruits creating a delightful counterpoint to the wild herbs and good structure. A wee bit of a slow burner this as it really builds in concentration, fruit intensity and length. A real charmer. Excellent" Otago Daily Times - Mark Henderson, 7 June.
