2015 Mud House Single Vineyard Claim 431 Pinot Noir - Even, dark ruby-red colour with some youthful purple hues, lighter on the rim.  This has a full and voluminous nose of richly ripe, primary, dark raspberry fruit aromas along with bright, lifted dark-red and violet floral, unfolding a subtle layer of thyme herbs.  The aromatics build gently to form  well-packed core.  Medium-full bodied, the palate is vibrant and rich with juicy flavours of ripe, dark raspberry fruit entwined with dark-red and black cherries, along with notes of dark herbs and spices, lifted by dark-red florals.  The sweet fruit is underlined by supple, fine-grained tannins and the wine flows along a smooth line with integrated acidity, leading to a finely concentrated, lingering finish.  This is a vibrantly rich and succulent Pinot Noir with aromatic flavours of dark raspberries, herbs and spices on a smooth-flowing, supple palate.  Match with duck, pork, lamb and beef dishes over the next  6+ years.  Clones 777, 115, 667, 5 and Abel from the ‘Claim 431’ vineyard, the fruit hand-picked and destemmed, and fermented to 14.0% alc., the wine aged 12 months in 25% new French oak.  2,000 dozen made.  18.5+/20  Apr 2017  RRP $32.99
