Mud House 2018 Marlborough, ‘Grovetown’ and Waipara ‘Home Block’ Pinot Gris


Mud House has access to fruit from different regions of the country, and it is fascinating to look at a single variety from different origins. Mud House winemaker Cleighten Cornelius bottles not only the variety, but also its provenance. There is also a truism that the more specific the origin of the fruit, the more character and expression of terroir is expressed. Mud House bottles three different Pinot Gris wines. The ‘Marlborough’ which comes from fruit from long-established contract growers in the Wairau Valley; the ‘Sub Region Series’ ‘Grovetown’; and the single vineyard ‘Home Block’ vineyard in the Waipara Valley. Here, I review all three Pinot Gris, from the 2018 vintage.
