Winery Notes:
The recently released 2011 Mud House Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc has been presented with a Gold Medal and Best in Class award at one of the world's most rigorous wine shows: The International Wine and Spirit Competition (IWSC), held recently in London.

This international award comes on the back of the recent announcement that Mud House Winemaker Nadine Worley was named as a finalist in the Wine Society Young Winemaker of the Year awards. "This is a fantastic reinforcement that we are doing the right thing in the vineyards and the winery", said Nadine. "We spend a great deal of time working in the vineyards, and then in the winery blending and combining various parcels to create our wine".

The IWSC judges' comments on the 2011 Mud House Sauvignon Blanc concluded with: "A terrific example of a beautifully made wine. Delicious."

REGION
30% of this wine was sourced from our Woolshed Vineyard in the upper Wairau Valley while the remainder was carefully selected from grower blocks in the Wairau, Ure and Awatere Valleys of Marlborough.

VINTAGE CONDITIONS
Bud break was late in September and was followed by a warm frost-free spring. Adequate rainfall and warm temperatures meant that the shoots grew quickly and flowering was earlier than normlal. From February onwards, the season cooled and although harvest began a few days earlier than normal in mid March, it didn't complete until 20th April.

GRAPE VARIETY
100% Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc

MATURATION
100% stainless steel fermentation
