Maude wines is a family owned wine company which produce premium Pinot Noir from their winery in Wanaka, Central Otago. Winemaking couple Dan and Sarah-Kate Dineen, had blended together over two decades of high profile international winemaking experience before moving back to Central Otago. Part of the motivation to move to Central Otago was the eternal search for the holy grail of winemaking, Pinot Noir perfection, and to join forces with Sarah-Kate's parents, Dawn and Dr Terry Wilson who have the well established Mount Maude vineyard in the Maungawera valley just outside Wanaka.
The winery writes "The 2019 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."
