$40.80

Maude Central Otago Pinot Noir

The 2017 Maude is sourced from Central Otago’s premium sub regions, each contributing to this savoury, complex Pinot Noir. Aromas of dark cherry, plum and dried herbs team up with a palate that displays layers of dark fruit flavours entwined with velvety but structural tannins. Careful cellaring for 5 years will reward.

VINIFICATION
A combination of our two other Central Otago vineyards, each vineyard contributing uniquely to the finished wine. Sitting Bull Vineyard – producing dense, concentrated and fleshy Pinot Noirs as it lies in the heart of Central Otago, nestled just above the shores of Lake Dunstan. The Fish Hook Vineyard in the Queensbury sub-region, higher in elevation, cooler and later to ripen, gives the perfume, structure, line and finesse to the blend. Each clone and parcel are hand harvested, fermented separately and very traditionally in open topped tanks, hand plunged, indigenous yeasts with a portion of whole bunch included in each fermenter. A month on skins for tannin development prior to pressing. Maturation in French barriques (30% new) for 10 months before bottling. As we prefer not to fine or filter our Pinot Noirs, this wine may form a sediment over time. Decanting is recommended to ensure clarity.
