Mud House ‘Sub Region’ ‘Rapaura’ Sauvignon Blanc 2017

03-Oct-2017
In November last year, Mud House launched their ‘Sub Region Series’ of wines with a collection of five different varieties and styles from different sub-regions of Marlborough, highlighting the strengths of the areas. The wines were a Sauvignon Blanc from ‘Rapaura’, a Pinot Gris from ‘Grovetown’, a Pinot Rose from ‘Burleigh’, a Chardonnay from ‘Omaka’, and a Pinot Noir from ‘The Narrows’ (click here to see my reviews). These are deemed distinctive wines from distinctive sub-regions by the Mud House viticultural team, and winemaker Cleighten Cornelius. Here, I review the first release of the new vintage wines, the 2017 ‘Rapaura’ Sauvignon Blanc. The wine is said to display "overt lift and pungency” and "crunchy phenolic textures” typical of the sub-region. www.mudhouse.co.nz
