I was first introduced to Mud House Wines by accidentally stumbling across their cellar door on a trip to Marlborough. The plan was to grab a bottle of wine from a cellar door in Waipara and head up to Kaikoura, park the campervan for the night and gorge on local seafood. With a newly acquired bottle of delicious, crisp Mud House Sauvignon Blanc and a giant, freshly cooked crayfish in hand, I sat on the rocks by the water to watch the sunset on a warm summer’s night. In that moment, I fell in love with New Zealand, Mud House wines and all things Sauvignon Blanc.
When the founders of Mud House Wines arrived in Marlborough twenty years ago, they fell in love with the landscape. After preparing the land for planting the vineyard, they built a house to live in, made from the earth. This is where the name ‘Mud House’ comes from.
Over the past two decades, the team at Mud House have established themselves as a leading producer of wines in Marlborough, Waiparaand Central Otago, with their main focus being a range that showcases the best varietals of those regions. They pride themselves on making beautiful, consistent wines for people that seek new experiences and thrive on a sense of adventure.
Awarded ‘Best Buy’ in this year’s Cuisine Magazine’s Sauvignon Blanc Tasting Panel (Cuisine Magazine, January 2018 Issue 186), the Mud House Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2017 displays bright aromas of guava, lemon and snow pea. The palate is full of juicy tropical fruits, melon and citrus flavours. The crisp grapefruit-like acidity extends the palate to a long mouth-watering finish. A beautiful, elegant example of a Marlborough savvy that is completely moreish! The perfect wine that will match well with goat’s cheese or a piece of grilled salmon with asparagus and seasonal vegetables.
This is clearly a tasty wine at a fantastic price of $95.94 a 6 pack. Celebrate all things Sauvignon Blanc and sunny Winter Saturdays with this delicious drop!
Let's face it, life would be easier if we had more wines like this!
This is the last of the last of the last…
I bet you are wondering what I am talking about? Well, let me elaborate.
Just under a month ago, we had the 2006 vintage of Mons Rubra and it sold out real quick. Today we have the last available vintage. And once it's gone, that's it!
You see, Mons Rubra has been sold to an oversea’s buyer, with the new owners selling off all of the older vintages that have been squirrelled away in their cellar. So, when I was told there was a small allocation of the 2007 available, I had to get my hands on it asap.
The Mons Rubra Macedon Pinot Noir 2007 is utterly delicious. Beautiful flavours of cherry, red berry fruits and strawberry with a hint of savoury earthiness. A delicious, mature wine from an exceptional vintage.
It’s a proper cool climate Pinot Noir in every way, with a $45 price tag to match. And today we have it for an absolute steal at $14.99/bottle. That is a MASSIVE 66% off!
So if you missed out on the 06, make sure you grab the 07!
If you want a truly incredible Barossan red then look no further than the Teusner Pleasure Garden Shiraz Grenache 2014.
Made with fruit sourced from an 80-year-old vineyard in heart of the Barossa Valley, this rich blend of Shiraz and Grenache displays delicious flavours of jammy plums, chocolate, pepper and spice. As you can imagine, it's utterly delicious.
This wine has been popular with WineGrowers Direct customers, just read these five-star customer reviews:
“A great wine and anyone who buys this will be more than happy. 100%” - Lipscombe, V
“A rare find, light and spicy Shiraz blend with full Barossa taste. Will be getting 2nd box” Ilia E.
As you can gather, this is one sublime Barossa Valley Shiraz blend. A classic full-bodied red, that will not disappoint.
What's even better is that you can have it today for just $14.99/bottle - that's whopping 50% off cellar door price.
A truly impressive wine made by a well-respected rising star of the wine industry.
Deep Woods Estate is a winery on the up and up. Based in Margaret River and lead by celebrated multi award-winning winemaker Julian Langworthy, this is a producer you want to keep your eye on.
Just a couple of weeks ago, Julian was named James Halliday’s Wine Companion's Winemaker of the Year 2019 and also has a Jimmy Watson Trophy under his belt. He consistently produces exceptional wines no matter what the price point is.
And this drop is an absolute stunner. Zesty, refreshing and well-balanced, this Deep Woods Estate Ivory Semillon Sauvignon Blanc 2017 is an absolute delight to drink. James Halliday has awarded this vintage a solid 94 points, along with Ray Jordan who gave it 90 points and described it as ‘wonderful expressive value-for-money blended white’.
And value for money is a very accurate statement. It's fair to say that this wine punches well about its weight. Today, I can offer this delicious drop to you for just $13.99/bottle in six packs. An exceptional wine for a very good price.
A 95 point Shiraz for only $12.99 a bottle? I think I might have found your new favourite drop!
In my opinion, Norfolk Rise could be one of the best-kept wine secrets in Australia.
Tucked away in the Mount Benson region on South Australia’s Limestone Coast, Norfolk Rise’s philosophy is to create wines that showcase the unique characteristics of the region while delivering elegant structure and fruit driven complexity.
Since the vineyard was planted in 2002, the cool maritime climate influence has been instrumental in producing wines of exceptional quality, and the Norfolk Rise Mount Benson Shiraz 2017
is a prime example. The vibrant nose displays aromas of soft florals, pepper, liquorice and spice. On the palate, juicy bright red fleshed fruits, black pepper, vanilla and cocoa are supported by smooth tannins.
James Halliday was a fan too, recently awarding this vintage 95 points and describing this wine as “totally enjoyable punching well above its weight”. Consistency is key to Norfolk Rise’s success, the last vintage of this wine scored 97 points, also won a Trophy and Double Gold Medals at an international wine competition.
If you were to buy this direct from the winery you will be paying upwards of $20 a bottle. Today I can offer it to you for just $12.99/bottle in dozens. A fantastic Shiraz that over-delivers on value and quality. A winner of a wine at a bargain price.
