Award-winning Kiwi winery Mud House has continued its golden run on the international stage, scoring Wine of the Year for its 2010 Sauvignon Blanc at Finland's Wine of the Year Competition 2011.
Now in its 14th year, Finland\'s Wine of the Year Competition judges 470 different wines across 19 categories. Mud House was a standout success at the competition, picking up a Gold - Best Wine in Category - for New World White Wines (over 10 Euro), as well as Wine of the Year.
Testament to the quality of Mud House's Sauvignon Blanc, its 2009 vintage also won Gold - Best Wine in Category - for New World White Wines (over 10 Euro) at the 2010 Awards.
Success wasn't limited to Mud House white varietals either; with the 2009 Mud House Central Otago Pinot Noir winning Bronze - Third Best Wine in Category - for New World Red Wines (over 10 Euro).
Mud House Wines spokesperson Cathy Wansink says recognition for Mud House wines on a global stage is hugely rewarding for the winery.
"Finland is proving to be a very successful and profitable market for Mud House Sauvignon Blanc, as well as other varietals," she says.
"With both Mud House Swan Pinot Noir and Mud House Pinot Gris recently listed in Finnair Duty Free, we believe the opportunities for our company are endless and are thrilled to be a part of this dynamic market."
