94 Points - Gourmet Traveller Magazine, NZ Pinot Noir Tasting, June 2021 (2019 Vintage)
"2019 Maude Pinot Noir received universal acclaim. Mathews summed it up: “A subtle yet alluring nose of red berries, star anise and dried rose petals. The palate is focused, with integrated chalky tannins and a green peppercorn finish.” I thought the wine had a sense of purity, with red cherry and raspberry fragrance. It was fine in style, with good balance and line through the mouth, and a nice touch of acidity."

Maude are making waves with their Otago Pinots. This is their Estate wine made from hand harvested fruit, Queensberry and Lowburn vineyards. Very much a family-owned and hand-crafted enterprise. 

Winery notes
"The 2020 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.

Hand harvested from our Lowburn and Queensberry vineyards in Central Otago. Fermented very traditionally in open topped tanks, hand plunged, indigenous yeasts with a portion of whole bunch included in each fermenter. 18 – 28 days on skins for tannin development prior to pressing. Maturation in French barriques (30% new) for 10 months before bottling."
