Mud House Waipara Riesling 2011

Mud House Waipara Riesling 2011 – $

The name ‘Mud House’ is a little off-putting for a wine I think. This is why I have been resistant to trying this brand, but hey, can’t buy the same stuff all the time, eh? Their wines have won a few trophies, and Mud House is an official wine supplier to Emirates Team New Zealand, so it must go well with salt water..

The wine is palest straw. Smells of lime and wild honey. I like the notes of age complexity at the back. Medium-bodied, with typical oily Riesling beading on the insides of the glass. Fresh citrus flavours, off dry. Very clean, very appealing. A good aperitif wine, and held up against the pasta I ate ok. Would buy again.
