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 - what worked, stayed, and what didn't thrive was pulled out. The first wines released in 1996 quickly established Muddy Water Estate as one of the first real high quality producers in the area, and much of our wine today is still being made from those original vines. The Easts retired in 2011 after two decades of winemaking accolades and passed stewardship of Muddy Water to the Thomas family (aka Greystone Wines), who continue to take the winery from strength to strength under the philosophy of minimal intervention, creating wines that fully express both site and vintage.
What The Critics Say
93/100 Wine Orbit, Sam Kim
"It is beautifully fruited and inviting on the nose showing golden peach, fig, vanillin oak and subtle spice aromas, followed by a wonderfully weighted palate that is rounded and flavoursome. The wine offers excellent fruit intensity together with creamy mouthfeel, finishing long and delectable. At its best: now to 2022. $25.00. www.muddywater.co.nz. July 2019." Drink 2019 - 2022
