Mud House Estate 'The Home Block' Waipara Valley Pinot Gris 2013

$145.26
This Single Vineyard Pinot Gris is sourced from our very own Home Block Vineyard in the Waipara Valley. The vineyard was established in 1994 on free draining alluvial soils that offer little fertility and along with Waipara's long cool growing season, provide perfect conditions for making world class Pinot Gris. Richly aromatic nuances of quince, ripe pear and subtle five spice lead into a palate full of elegant flavour, unctuous phenolics and marvellous length.
Tasting Notes
Colour: 
Straw yellow with a delicate pink hue
Nose: 
Richly aromatic with notes of quince, ripe pear and a hint of cardamom spice.
Palate: 
Full and rich, showing yellow peach and spicy notes. The succulent and generous mouth feel is given structure and balance by the beautifully ripe phenolics. The dry finish is long, elegant and mouth watering.
Serve: 
Chilled
Peak Drinking: 
Now, and will continue to develop for 3-5 years
Suggested Food Match: 
Roast chicken with Tarragon.

Wine Background
Vineyard Region: 
Mud House Home Block Vineyard in the Waipara Valley.
Vintage Conditions: 
The Waipara harvest started in good time, 28th March, bang on Easter. The old timers in Waipara have a saying that harvest always happens around Easter, regardless of when it falls. The cool Spring slowed down the start of the season, but a warm and stable summer gave the best possible conditions for the fruit and flavour development. Crop weights were on the lighter side for all varietals but the flavours, general sweetness and solid acidity were impressive.
Grape Variety: 
100% Pinot Gris
Maturation: 
100% Stainless Steel Fermentation

100% Waipara Valley (67% Home Block, 33% Deans Vineyard)

The cool spring slowed down the start of the season; but a warm and stable summer gave the best possible conditions for fruit and flavour development. Some rain at the start of the harvest period slowed things down, but didn't affect the overall quality.
Grape Variety: 
100% Pinot Gris
Maturation: 
Mostly machine harvested, cool pressed and settled then fermented in stainless steel tanks for freshness. The ferments were stopped when the wine was balanced and then left cold and unsulphured for over a month so the yeast could naturally settle and the flavours could develop.
