A decade ago it was predicted that the Central Otago region in New Zealand would be the next Mecca for Pinot. After you’ve tasted Mud House I think you’ll see that the Kiwis are on to something.
The wine is a perfect mix of the austerity of the original Burgundy Pinot, and the more fruity/friendly New World style. It’s refreshing and earthy ““ and also seductive. Just a delicious drink that exudes a Summer day, life is good feeling. Some predictions come true! I’d have to say it might be the best under $20 Pinot on the planet.
