Mud House achieves consecutive success at the New World Wine AwardsMudhouse wines

Mud House has continued with its track record of success at the New World Wine Awards with the 2012 Mud House Pinot Noir and 2012 Mud House Pinot Gris being awarded Gold medals. The gold medals carry on from the success at last year’s awards where the 2010 Mud House Pinot Noir was voted best Pinot Noir and Champion Red Wine of the Show.

“This is the second year in a row our Mud House Pinot Noir has proved to be a winner; it’s a reflection of the consistently stunning fruit that comes from our Claim 431 Vineyard in Bendigo, Central Otago,” says Nadine Worley, Mud House Winemaker. “Without fail this vineyard gives us bold flavours but still maintains that elegance and structure that Central Otago is famous for and consumers love – full, juicy approachable wine with texture and finesse to back it up.”

Claim 431 Vineyard Manager, Duncan Cramp is delighted with the Pinot Noir result, “It’s total satisfaction that the team’s hard work is reflected in the awards we’re receiving; long may it continue!” says Duncan.

Jim Harré, Chair of New World Wine Awards 2013, described the Mud House Pinot Gris as a fantastic wine, “dry and crisp, it has incredible intensity of flavour. It’s got spices and there’s this lovely baked pear component. It really is a quintessential food wine. Try with pasta, chicken, fish; it will work well with all of them.”

13 expert wine judges were on hand to taste and analyse a record number of entries for the New World Wine Awards from around the world. A total of 1,099 wines were entered, 63% of which are from New Zealand.

Now in their eleventh year, the New World Wine Awards are eagerly anticipated and considered to be the ‘bible’ by many wine consumers, as well as a fantastic reference point which increase awareness and enable consumers to make more informed decisions when purchasing wine.
