Wine Entry : Marlborough Mud House Sauvignon Blanc 2004 (New Zealand)

Tasted this bottle at Jasons Marketplace Orchard Towers Branch with C.K. He is waxing lyrical about New Zealand Sauvignon Blancs. Never knew that the underground cellar area of Jasons at this outlet had some chairs and a table for on the spot drinking. The service was excellent; the nice auntie from Jasons even provided wine glasses and ice in a bucket to chill this white wine.

Smell : Fresh cut flora smells, slightly citrus inviting bouquet.

Taste : Melon, peaches and lime. Overall light and refreshing.

After-taste : Slightly acidic and lemony.

Description at the back of the label :

History – In 1993 John and Jennifer Joslin salied into the Marlborough Sounds and tasted their first wines. The quality from this premium wine region so impressed them they purchased the land and planted their own vineyard. The first Mud House wine was released in 1996. The name Mud House comes from the rammed earth house they have built in the middle of their home vineyard.

Enjoying – A powerful lifted nose showing aromas of passion fruits, gooseberry, honeysuckle and underlying tropical notes. The palate is light bodied, dry, crisp and satisfying with rich guava and nettles with just a hint of lime. Mouthwatering acidity leads to a long lingering finish. Perfect for immediate drinking, this wine will be at its best over the next 1-2 years.
