This single vineyard wine was solely sourced from our vineyard in the Bendigo sub-region of Central Otago. The vineyard's free draining loam soils over schist gravel makes it a natural home for outstanding Pinot Noir. The huge diurnal temperatures also adds to the structure and increases concentration.Harvest commenced 6th April in our Bendigo vineyard. The grapes were gently destemmed, allowing whole berries to remain intact. After a cold soak, each parcel was fermented separately, with a combination of wild and cultured yeast. Each batch was hand plunged to extract the vibrant colour, flavour and delicate tannin structure. Each parcel was then pressed separately to a mix of new and used French oak barrels or remained in tank. In the spring after completing malolactic fermentation, each parcel and tank was tasted and blended.
Most recently Mud House has directed a lot of time and enegry to Central Otago. This first release is a product of these efforts. From the Dry Bones Vineyard in Bendigo, just North of Bannockburn and sitting right off of Lake Dunstan.
