Remember when I used to talk about wine? A lot. Yes that was nice.
Well, my friends at Pasternak Wine Imports have come through for me again with another delicious batch of Mud House Wines. Also funny is that Mud House wines was the last wine I reviewed back in January. So we’re just picking up right where we left off. With a new batch of wines from new years, all quite delicious.
Here’s a bit of a refresher about our Wino friends down under:
Established in 1996, the Mud House name reflects our origin and link to the earth, where the wine begins. Our vineyards are nurtured to ensure that our grapes reach optimum ripeness, varietal character and flavour. Our winemakers then finely craft the wine to capture the essence of its origin. All Mud House wines are produced sustainably.
Nadine Worley and Hayden Oliver lead the Mud House winemaking team. Their combined experience from working vintages all over the world, coupled with their finely tuned palates and attention to detail ensures Mud House wines are the finest expressions of our cool climate regions.
Since Valencia 2007, Mud House has been the official wine supplier for Emirates Team New Zealand (ETNZ) supporting their bid to win the America’s Cup. As the ‘official wine supplier’ to ETNZ, Mud House used this opportunity to introduce both consumers and the trade to Mud House’s distinguished New Zealand wines. Members of the Pasternak Wine Imports team and Mud House winemaker, Ben Glover, were recently in San Francisco with several key wholesalers/retailers and media for a series of events surrounding the America’s Cup. America’s Cup is the premier global sailing competition, seen and experienced by millions now being hosted in San Francisco for the first time in 18 years.
Sounds awesome right? Because they are. And the sponsor America’s Cup. And they make real good wine. And really crisp wine. Delicious, refreshing wine. And they were nice enough to send me four bottles to try.
And so far I’ve been able to put a dent in two of them, the Pinot Gris and the Sauvignon Blanc. My goodness do I love a good white wine. Both of these were so crisp and fruity, perfect to wind down the evening with. Also excellently paired with popcorn and good company. They were both also sweet, quite sweet. I didn’t mind but if you like sweet these may not be the wines for you.
I preferred the pinot gris the most as it was the lightest. And most refreshing. And just, you guys. These wines are my favorite. Perfect to wind down summer with and quite lovely to enjoy with my evenings.
