At the Mud House, they craft wines using a combination of technology and traditional winemaking methods with the courage to do things their way. Mud House nurture their vineyards throughout New Zealand so that our grapes reach optimum ripeness, ensuring varietal character and flavour.

Colour: Pale straw.

Nose: Refreshing aromas of ripe tropical melon and peach with a twist of citrus.

Palate: The impression of fruit sweetness from the bouquet follows through on the palate. This richness is a perfect foil for the vibrancy of the textural components of the wine.

Hawkes Bay enjoyed an excellent long warm summer with even ripening and great flavour development. The resulting fruit picked at peak physiological ripeness.

The fruit came from multiple sites throughout Hawkes Bay from the Gimblet Gravels Ngatarawa Triangle and Bay View.

After picking and pressing the individual parcels were tank fermented at warm temperatures. At the end of fermentation the wines were aged on the yeast lees for four months prior to blending and bottling.

Maturation: Aged on the yeast lees for four months.

Producer Information

A wise gardener once said 'Grapes are the most noble and challenging of fruits'.
These are the words that run through the minds at Mud House as they call for the helicopters in the middle of a freezing Central Otago night or selectively prune every second bunch of grapes from their vines, to lift the quality of the remaining fruit.
Mud House people just love a challenge. Some of them have arrived in viticulture from the coal mines of the corporate world; others have followed their noses through the echelons of wine making. They're united in their determination to find every drop of potential in the grapes they work with.
Within the Mud House family you can discover three ranges. Hay Maker holds its own as a damn good quaffing wine; the Mud House label is a premium range of award winning wines; and Mud House Swan is their boutique reserve tier, offering small parcel, single vineyard estate wines that really stand out from the crowd.
With vineyards in Marlborough, Waipara and Central Otago, Mud House staked a claim on some of New Zealand's best wine land. They let the vines decide where the property ambitions should lie, so future purchases will always follow the dream of the ideal land to grow the perfect grape.
When you take a first sip of Mud House wine, we hope it brings a smile to your lips. No amount of pontificating about winemaking can say as much as that magical moment.
