Straw in colour with flecks of gold. A complex nose of ripe pear, almonds and nutmeg revealing more layers over time. A palate with weight and texture highlighted by toasted caramel, grainy phenolics and long fresh acidity.
About Muddy Water
Nestled in the lee of the Teviotdale Hills in the Waipara Valley and sheltered from the cool ocean breezes, the Muddy Water estate is an ideal spot for cool climate viticulture. The 12 hectare estate is flatter across its front section, then steep up the back as it goes up the north-facing hill slopes. The blocks are interspersed with a small olive grove and a naturally renewing spring winding its way through the property. All our wine is made and bottled on-site in our hand-built straw bale winery just a few hundred metres from the vines. The name Muddy Water is a literal translation of 'Waipara' - and, like theirwines, is a direct reflection of the environment around them.
