Mud House ‘Sub Region Series’ ‘The Narrows’ Marlborough Pinot Noir 2017

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 19-Dec-2018
Even, dark ruby-red colour with light purple hues, paler edged. The nose is firm and taut with dark-red and black cherry fruit along with dark herbs, overlaid by minerally reduction. The fruit is subdued and the reductive elements up-front and dominating. Medium-bodied, the palate has a firm core of bitter dark-red cherry fruit melded with dark herbs and some oak toast. The sulphide reduction is prominent and lends a firmness and mineral edge to the palate. This has firm, fine-grained tannin grip with integrated acidity. The flavours carry along a a tight line leading to a finish of bitter cherry fruit and minerals. This is a firm Pinot Noir with bitter cherry and herb-nuanced fruit marked by sulphide reductive notes. Serve with grilled and barbecued red meats over the next 3+ years. Fruit from the narrowing of the Upper Wairau Valley, destemmed and indigenous yeast fermented to 13.0% alc., a portion of the wine aged several months in new French oak. 2,400 cases made. 16.0-/20 Dec 2018 RRP $19.99
