It has been a number of years since the last Mud House Rose. The vision was to make a fresh easy drinking style of wine ideal for mid summer drinking. The opportunity to make this style of wine was presented via a fantastic growing season at their Central Otago Vineyard.
100% Central Otago Pinot Noir from their Bendigo Vineyard. Harvested during the last week of April 2008.
