Mud House South Island Pinot Gris 2017
Straw yellow in colour, with a clean, crisp nose of cut pear, honeydew melon and spicy quince.
Delicately juicy and wonderfully mouth coating. The spicy pear notes open the front palate. These primary fruit flavours lead to the perfect blend of soft lingering acidity and gentle sweetness on the finish.
SOLD OUT - Mud House South Island Pinot Gris 2018 vintage is now available here.
Once harvested, the grapes were gently pressed and settled in tank. The warm fermentation started with a handful of selected yeast strains. To add complexity and texture; a portion of the wine was fermented in old French oak barriques. After the completion of fermentation the wine was left to relax on light yeast lees to enhance structure and mouth feel. The wine was blended and lightly fined in July, then bottled in early August.
The 2016 vintage started well with warm weather during flowering ensuring a well-blanced crop. The following warm and extended summer allowed the fruit to ripen evenly and created ripe fruit flavours and acid. The grapes were harvested between 21 March to 15 April 2016. Our 2016 wines are approachable with a generous palate.
Drinking deliciously now, and will continue to reward for at least 3 years. Perfect with pork belly. Winery Notes
