2014 Mud House Pinot Noir Central Otago
Central Otago, New Zealand
Bright red cherry balances well with slightly oaky, tannic finish. A crowd pleaser on the tasting menu.
$19.79 as part of a mixed case.
24+ bottles available.
"Aromas of dark cherry and berry fruits, with spice, floral and dried herbs with intergrated oak. A smooth palate of dark cherry and bramble flavours that live long with the fine tannin and balanced acid. Peak drinking through 2019."
"Harvested from our Bendigo vineyard. The grapes were gently destemmed, allowing whole berries to remain intact. After a cold soak, each parcel was fermented separately, with a combination of wild and cultured yeast. Each batch was hand plunged to extract the vibrant colour, flavour and delicate tannin structure. Each parcel was then pressed separately to a mix of new and used French oak barrels or remained in tank. In the spring after completing malolactic fermentation, each parcel and tank was tasted and blended. 13.5% alc."

$26.9990 WS; 90 WE This vintage is all about balance. Dried red cherry and some spice with a nice acid balance make the wine very food friendly. Would you believe pork souvlaki? We wouldn't either if we hadn't tried it ourselves.
