Mud House Estate Claim 431 Central Otago Pinot Noir

Cracka Rating

Cracka Review

In true central Otago style, this is a richer, more musclebound pinot noir with a bit of grunt. Aromas of fleshy dark berries and plums rise up from the glass, along with some hints of chocolate and coffee, and some dried herbs. The palate is quite plush and giving, with lots of ripe plum flavours, savoury-edged tannins, and a bright, tight finish. This could cope with a rich lamb dish. 

Winemaker's Notes

Appearance: Dark ruby red.

Nose: A complex nose of dark plums, mocha spice and sweet oak.

Palate: A generous palate of a dark autumn fruits, perfectly interwoven with a spicy textured tannins. This full bodied vibrant Pinot Noir finishes with classic Central Otago acidity.

Food: Seared NZ Venison

Cellaring: Drinking wonderfully now, but willl continue to develop for 5-8 years.

WINESTATE (2010 Vintage) says
Lovely wine with attractive, warm, ripe, varietal fruit profile showing a nice earthy edge. Oak is quite forward but the fruit can handle it. Has great texture and warming alcohol.
