The Mud House story started in New Zealand, when a couple of adventurers on a sailing trip of the world fell in love with Marlborough and never left. They purchased land, planted vineyards and used the local earth to build their home. That home became the Mud House brand.
More than 20 years on, with a renewed sense of energy, Mud House remain as in touch with the land as their name suggests. Curiosity for the world and adventure has seen Mud House branch out, eagerly exploring other wine regions and exciting wine styles. This has led to their latest offering, Mud House Brut Cuvée, the first sparkling wine for the brand and the perfect addition to their growing range.
Mud House Brut Cuvée has an inviting nose, with aromas of toasty brioche and honey. The elegant palate reflects the traditional sparkling combination of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. The delicate bubbles contribute to the creamy texture, which leads into a dry, refreshing finish.
Coming to market just in time for summer, this wine is perfect for any occasion. A very food friendly wine, Mud House Brut Cuvée pairs well with a range of cuisines, from cheese and charcuterie platters (we recommend our Baked Goats Cheese Toasts with Blackberries and Hazelnuts), to seafood (we recommend our Citrus Ceviche with Avocado or our Hot Smoked Salmon and Horseradish Pâté), pastries at brunch or with meringues and strawberries for dessert (we recommend our Rhubarb and Strawberry Frangipane Tarts).
Mud House Brut Cuvée is available in all good wine retailers, RRP $20.
