Mud House Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2009

External Review by Premium Wine & Spirits:

Restrained nose hints at pineapple and gooseberry. Nicely fleshy and ripe on the palate, with an enticing sweetness leavened by notes of grapefruit, anise and pepper. Well-made, persistent sauvignon with good stuffing.

Former farmer and businessman John Joslin cruised the world by boat for six years with his wife, Jennifer, before settling in New Zealand. they traded in the yacht for 20 acres of land in Marlborough and bottled their first vintage in 1996. The Joslins maintain hands-on involvement in the business, relying on winemaker Allen Hedgman and viticulturist Malcolm Adams for the production of this vibrant, fruit-centered white.

Pineapple and gooseberry aromas lifted by a light peppery element. Simple and juicy, with tropical melon and gooseberry flavors offering moderate complexity. Finishes distinctly firm-edged, with bracing notes of pineapple, grapefruit and gooseberry.

Bright, showing lime, passion fruit and pear on a racy frame. Finish persists. Drink now.

Grassy, with fine intensity to lime juice, mineral and tart green apple flavors. Drink now.

Delightfully crisp and balanced, with a backbone of herbaceous notes and fruit to boot. Ripe melon, zesty citrus and and hints of passion fruit. The finish is mouthwatering and lengthy, a great Sauvignon Blanc to sample.
