Mud House 2010 Pinot Noir 'N Block' Central Otago 13.5%
A complex and thoughtful bouquet with a specific oak, soil, dried herb and fruit quality package and initial aroma attack. Specific barrel selection for oak spices apparent, silty loess and schist soil suggestions; wild dried thyme and thick skinned hardy cherry and red fruits. On the palate a dry wine, juicy too with a fruity and flavorful expression that has depth, complexity, balance and charm.
A smart buy whatever the price.
