Lucas Mader's Picks

Mud House Pinot Gris coming to you from Marlborough, New Zealand – from old gold mining lands turned vineyards. Hot summer days and cool nights provide ripeness, and bright acidity lending to great concentration and expressive complexity. After fermentation, a portion of the wine is aged in French Oak barrels for an undisclosed amount of time giving extra lusciousness and subtle oak character. This wine has notes of ripe tropical fruits, citrus, orange blossom, and fresh pear that lead into a medium full body with fresh acidity and long finish.
