A very admired and highly respected Central Pinot.
"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." Winery
