Part of a handful of wines that my friend Curly Haslam-Coates, left me after teaching a WSET session. Going by the wines, pretty sure the theme was “certain wines from these places should taste like this.”
Mud House, Pinot Noir, Central Otago, 2014
A muscular and dark edition. Axle grease, beef stock, black cherries, dried herbs and spiced oak. The palate exudes surliness as it crawls into existence with meaty cherry, sinewy tannins and plenty of peppery spice. A deliciously dark expression of Central Otago.
