2019 Muddy Water Skin Ferment
|Producer||Greystone Wines. Waipara, NZ|
|Status||Muddy Water was the first certified organic winery in Canterbury, certified by AsureQuality organic.|
Muddy Water was born almost a quarter century ago when viticulture pioneers Jane and Michael East recognised the potential for grape growing in the Waipara Valley. They first planted the vineyard in 1993 with a range of experimental varieties with the first wines released in 1996. The Easts retired in 2011 after two decades of winemaking accolades and passed stewardship of Muddy Water to the Thomas family, who own Greystone and continue to create wines with same ethos of low intervention that truly reflect both site and vintage.
|Wine||This year we wanted to add complexity through multiple varieties. We hand-picked Riesling, Gewurtztraminer, with a little Gruner Veltliner and St Laurent. Fermented separately, without any additions, in amphoras and open-top fermenters on skins for one month before aging in old barrels. Bottled without any sulphur addition (some may be present). A savoury wine, light copper in colour, crisp, bright palate with gentle tannins.|
|Tasting Note||Floral - Green herbs - Savoury|
