Maude (Central Otago) 2022 EMW Pinot Noir

Winery description

"A celebration of two blocks of mature Pinot Noir from the Mt Maude Vineyard. As the name suggests, the blocks face opposite directions. Made in a different style - 100% whole cluster, clone 10-5, often only one pigaege during the ferment - definitely a unique winemaking twist on Pinot production. A bewitching perfume, paler in colour yet full, luscious and complex. Love it or hate it, this Pinot Noir certainly creates some debate."

Complex heady aromas / truffle / violet / mushroom / richness & depth / subtle tannins / seamless

Vine age at harvest: 27 years

Maude (Otago) 2023 Pinot Gris

Ever popular, this stunning Pinot Gris from Otago producer, Maude.

Winery note

"Quince, pear and biscuits - voluminous and fuller bodied from partial fermentation in seasoned oak barrels.

There were so many positives with this growing season and the resultant 2022 harvest. Nature provided some timely rains from October to December, which combined with warm dry periods in between allowed the vines to thrive, good even growth making Spring / Summer vine training a dream. Our nemesis, jack frost, was nowhere to be found and we enjoyed calm settled weather over flowering and fruit set, resulting in a healthy crop load with above average number of bunches/vine but smaller than average berry size, the perfect combination. Whilst the strong La Nina brought rain to the North Island and much of the East Coast of Australia, it gave us a beautifully warm, dry Autumn that extended into May. Whilst harvest started early for us in mid-March at Mohawk Hill, we enjoyed the cooler finish to the season which slowed down ripening at Poison Creek and Mt Maude, giving the Pinot Noirs in particular, time to develop wonderful flavours. We’re excited.

Whole bunch press and Footstomped parcels with 30% fermented in oak barriques."
