Mud House Single Vineyard Claim 431 Pinot Noir 2021 (6 Bottles) Central Otago

by Wines By Cellars 0 orders



COLOUR: Deep garnet.

NOSE: Layers of dark cherry and fresh raspberry are complemented by delicate florals and warm oak spice.

PALATE: An elegant and complex palate is supported by cool climate acidity and ripe red fruits. Subtle spice and supple tannins contribute to the texture, length and finish.

THE VINEYARD: All the fruit was sourced solely from our Claim 431 Vineyard in Bendigo, Central Otago. Free draining loam soils over schist gravel makes this sub-region a natural home for growing outstanding Pinot Noir. The huge diurnal (day/night) temperature shifts which are typical of the region, add to the structure and increased flavour concentration in the fruit.

COMMENTS: When the grapes for this Pinot Noir reached optimal ripeness they were hand harvested and gently destemmed. After a week long cold soak, each parcel was fermented using indigenous yeast and hand plunged to extract vibrant colour, flavour and delicate tannin structure. The wine was then separately pressed into a mix of new and old French oak barrels to mature for 12 months. Natural malolactic fermentation began at the beginning of spring. The wine was bottled on 11 February 2020.
