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

$145.26 GST inc.
per case of 6

(24.21 per bottle)
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.

VINTAGE 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
