    The first thing you do when you start your own winery is take a good look around for something to name it after, usually a hill, a mountain, a road, or if you’re especially lucky a bay. These guys obviously had nothing but mud, so they built a house out of it and named it Mud House. Brilliant.

    They’ve built little Mud Houses in three key wine growing regions – Marlborough, Waipara Valley and Central Otago (which is where they produce this wicked little value for money Pinot Noir).

    Once upon a time Otago was all about rabbits and gold, says Ben Glover (the ex-Wither Hills legend now steering the Mud House ship). The gold’s gone and the Rabbits are stew – now it’s all about the Pinot Noir in these neck of the woods.

    Great value for money to pick up quality Central Pinot for a snip under twenty bucks. As Bob Campbell (Master of Wine) put it (whilst scoring it 91/100) – “A smooth textured and appealing wine that’s easy to love. A minor fruit bomb style. Offers value at this price ($24)”.
