Mud House Marlborough Pinot Noir

A few weeks ago I wrote about a pinot noir from Mud House made with grapes from the Central Otago region in New Zealand. It was delicious and reminded me about how good New Zealand pinot noir can me. And now I have another pinot noir from Mud House, this one from grapes grown in the Wairau valley in the Marlborough region of New Zealand. It too is delicious.

Bright raspberry and cherry aromas coupled with spices like cedar and black pepper, give a nice nose to the wine. Although I’d say it’s only moderate in intensity. The palate is a similar story, offering ripe cherry, raspberry and strawberry flavors along with a touch of spice — all with moderate concentration. It has good acidity and a good mouthfeel. It finishes long and fruity. It’s not quite as lively as their Central Otago pinot noir, yet it’s still pretty tasty.
