Vibrant with bright, tart cherry aromas. Lively and mouth-watering with a medium-body and satin-smooth texture. Some cranberry and dark cherry on this finish. A terrific pinot for this price point!

Pinot Noir food pairings: grilled salmon with pinot noir sauce, coq au vin, roast turkey.

Mark Britton rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

If you're a Pinot Noir fan, I mean a classic Pinot Noir fan, you will enjoy this Mud House from Central Otago. Some of the classic flavours come out (barnyard, almost musty) but ripe with blackberry fruit. Central Otago is making a name for themselves and competing with Martinborough to be New Zealands Pinot capitals. If you haven't tried one from the region before this is a great starting point.
Very Typical Pinot Noir with cherry, cranberry on the nose together with a touch of beet-root and dry black cherry. Firm body and elegant finish

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a feisty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.
