Ripe berry fruit aromas with a touch of spice and dark choclate lead to a meduim bodied flavoursome palate with fine tannins.
2011 Mud House Marlborough Pinot Grigio
A true "kiwi" Pinot Grigio. Harvested early to retain the crisp citrus and apple flavours.
Fresh aromas of citrus and green apple with a touch of white peach.
Zesty flavours of lemons and granny smith apples fill the front palate. The lively acidity leads to a dry refreshing finish.
As chilled as possible.
This wine is best when it is young. Drink now-2013.
SUGGESTED FOOD MATCH
Creamy salmon pasta with a fennel and orange salad.
The fruit for this wine was sourced solely from the d'Avergne Vineyard whcih is situated in Marlborough's lower Wairau Valley on moderaterly fertile, free draining clay soils.
Bud break was late September and was followed by a warm, frost free spring. Adequate rainfall and warm temperatures meant the shoots grew quickly and flowering was earlier than usual. After January, the season cooled and the grapes used for this wine was harvested on the 15th March.
100% Pinot Gris
The grapes were gently destemmed and pressed before cold settling. After racking, the juice was cool fermeted with a selection of cultured yeast. After fermentation the wine was cold settled and fined using natural methods before being prepared for bottling.
