Mud House Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2016
SOLD OUT - Click here to view the 2017 Vintage
The wine is Pale lemon in colour with a lifted aromatic nose of snow pea, citrus and passionfruit.
A beautifully balanced wine. The front palate fills with fresh greens and ripe tropical flavours. The crisp grapefruit like acidity extends the palate to a long mouth-watering finish.
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 fruit for Mud House Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc is sourced from our Woolshed vineyard, in the upper Wairau Valley; as well as from our long established growers in the Awatere and Wairau Valleys, sub regions of Marlborough.
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 2016 vintage started well with warm weather during flowering ensuring a well-blanced crop for Marlborough. 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. Winery Notes.
