Maude Pinot Noir 2016

Maude Pinot Noir 2016 2017 Gold Medal Air NZ Wine Awards & 92 pts Wine Advocate

Tasting Notes

The nose has an engaging spice lift, along with an herbal background of thyme and wild herbs overlaying the dark cherry and plum notes aromatically. Medium fuller bodied, there is a modicum of elegance with ultra fine, velvety tannins giving some structure and firming up the sweetly fruited mid palate. Supple without heft, this has depth and expansive dark cherry and plum flavors that carry over from the nose with some dried herb and stone fruit pit stemminess adding complexity on the finish. Just now starting to open up this should drink impressively over the next 5 plus years.

92 pts Wine Advocate Issue #235 Feb 2018
A blend of six clones, Maude's 2016 Pinot Noir was partially destemmed and aged in 30% new French oak for ten months. It has ample herb notes on the nose of thyme and tea leaves, plus red fruit and a hint of flower blossoms. It's medium to full-bodied, with supple tannins that flow easily across the palate, up until the finish, where they reveal a bit of astringency. It's a complex, enjoyable Pinot to drink over the next 7-8 years.

Winemaker Notes

Layers of ripe dark cherry and berry fruits, hints of violet, clove and cinnamon with subtle whole bunch complexities. Medium to full bodied, the palate is voluminous where dark fruit flavours are supported by velvety tannins, creating a wine with structure and poise.
