Mud House Central Otago Pinot Noir 2013

29-Jul-2014
The different Mud House Central Otago Pinot Noir expressions from the ‘Claim 431’ vineyard in the Bendigo sub-region of Central Otago have proven extremely successful, winning nearly 50 gold medals over their eight years of production. Wines from the accessible ‘Mud House’ range, the premium’Estate’ tier, and the rare ‘Single Block’ bottlings have all won awards, indicating the high quality of the fruit from the site. Situated on Loop Road, there are 81 ha planted to 10 clones of Pinot Noir, these being 667, 777, 115, 114, 113, 5, 6, 13, Abel and 10/5. The first planting of 61 ha was in 2003, in what was then called the ‘Golden Terraces’, with a further 20 ha planted in 2006. The establishment of the vineyard was by Duncan Cramp who was the vineyard manager until May this year when he retired. The first vintage was in 2006. Here, I review the new release 2013 Mud House Pinot Noir, which follows the multi-gold and trophy winning 2012 vintage, the wines made by Nadine Worley. www.mudhouse.co.nz
