Mud House Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2011
Our vintage 2011 classic Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc is blended from vineyards across Marlborough to capture all the flavours that this region is famous for.
A vibrant nose reminiscent of spring with snow pea and passionfruit aromas.
A focussed and concentrated palate with crisp grapefruit acidity and bold tropical flavours.
SUGGESTED FOOD MATCH
Pan-fried scallops with bacon and asparagus.
30% of this wine was sourced from our Woolshed Vineyard in the upper Wairau Valley while the remainder was carefully selected from grower blocks in the Wairau, Ure and Awatere Valleys of Marlborough.
Bud break was late in September and was followed by a warm frost-free spring. Adequate rainfall and warm temperatures meant that the shoots grew quickly and flowering was earlier than normlal. From February onwards, the season cooled and although harvest began a few days earlier than normal in mid March, it didn't complete until 20th April.
