Mud House Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2017
Pale lemon in colour, with lifted aromatic nose of snow pea, nettles and guava.
A beautifully balanced wine. The front palate fills with fresh melon, citrus and grapefruit flavours. The crisp grapefruit like acidity extends the palate to a long mouth-watering finish.
SOLD OUT - Mud House Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2018 vintage is now available here.
Our Marlborough vineyards are on moderately fertile glacial soils. This includes a mix of sandy loam over very deep gravels; fertile loams and clays.
The most important thing in making vibrant Sauvignon Blanc is to avoid oxidation and corruption. This is done every step of the way; from harvesting to putting the wine into the bottle.
We keep every vineyard batch separate through-out the winemaking process until blending. The final process is fining and filtering, before the wine is then bottled.
The 2017 vintage experienced a varied ripening season of cool winds and warm sunshine. This resulted in a slightly later harvest, so a longer hang time for the fruit which enabled full development of ripe fruit flavours during the summer months. Due to a cooler flowering season the crop was slightly lighter, so the well balanced crop provided great purity and texutre. The Sauvignon Blanc fruit was harvested between April 1 and April 28.
Will continue to drink well for the coming 3 - 4 years. Match with Vietnamese seafood spring rolls, with fresh coriander, lime and crunchy vegetables. Winery Notes
