Ripe berry fruit aromas with a touch of spice and dark choclate lead to a meduim bodied flavoursome palate with fine tannins.
Reviews of the 2010 Mud House South Island Pinot Gris
Review by Ray Jordan for The West Australian 2nd July
2010 Mud House South Island Pinot Gris. A blend of Marlborough, Nelson and Waipara pinot gris from the South Island. Really enticing mix of Granny Smith apple, cinnamon and pear on the nose. The palate has a certain viscosity with rich lees influencing flavours. It's creamy with just a touch of acidity to liven up the long flavoursome palate. Excellent example of the variety. 93 Points.

Mud House South Island Pinot Gris 2010 Unlike many Pinot Gris, this hit my sweet spot the wine was singing with high and low notes, fruit, acid and just a hint of oiliness and all in the correct balance 93 points and worth its $22AUD.
Review by Paul Ippolito, Australia, June 2011:
I like Pinot Gris that sticks to its true roots. This is Pinot Gris not Pinot Grigio. And I really like it. Luscious fullsome and succulent, the fruit does all the talking here with upfrontness and a creaminess that entices you in – drawing you closer and closer until wham bam you are well and truly on board. A white wine for those who like substance in their whites – pears, musk and honey resonate heartily on the finish. Try this with Malaysian chicken curry.
Drink Now. 91/100 – Excellent
