Mud House ‘N Block’ Central Otago Pinot Noir 2010

12-Mar-2014
The quality of the fruit of the Mud House ‘Claim 431’ vineyard in Bendigo. Central Otago is becoming increasingly recognised by consumers, as the wines under different tiers and labels, as well as varying price points are released. This can be seen with the Mud House Central Otago Pinot Noir 2012 at $27.99 and Mud House ‘Claim 431’ Pinot Noir 2012 at $34.99, both of which are multi-gold medal winners. (Click here to see my reviews.) Further to these wines is a very limited release of an ‘N Block’ Pinot Noir, also from the company’s Bendigo vineyard, this wine appealing to the specialist wine lover. The wine was shown as a ‘Mud House Pinot Noir 2010 Barrel Sample’ at last year’s Pinot Noir 2013 event, where it garnered considerable interest and praise by sommeliers and critics. The wine is a bottling of a single clone, 667, from the ‘N Block’, and is representation of this particularly favourable and proven superior block. Five barriques were made, but after various tastings and trial work, only 840 bottles are commercially available. Here is my review of one of those bottles. www.mudhouse.co.nz
