Maude Pinot Noir 2009

Maude Pinot Noir 750ml 2009      
Sku: 1845254*

Maude is owned by the experienced winemaking couple of Sarah-Kate and Dan Dineen. The two produce hand-crafted wines from their custom built winery set against the backdrop of Lake Wanaka in Central Otago. Together, they have over two decades of international winemaking experience. After marrying in 2003, they decided to move back home to New Zealand to be closer to family and establish Maude. Part of the motivation to move to Central Otago was the eternal search for the holy grail of winemaking, Pinot Noir perfection. It comes as no surprise to industry insiders that Maude has become an instant success. The current range includes a Central Otago Pinot Noir and Pinot Gris, as well as, the pinnacle of the brand from the family’s own vineyard - Mount Maude Pinot Noir. At 45 degrees longitude, Central Otago is the southernmost wine region in the world. Here, the grapes have the longest hang-time of any viticultural area and can be picked as late as mid-May which allows for perfect ripening. The soil profile of clay and gravel mix is free-draining and stable. This wine combines fruit Maude’s very own mature family vineyard Mt. Maude and three of Central Otago’s premium sub-regions - Gibbston, Northburn and Queensbury. Each vineyard contributes uniquely to the complexity of the finished wine.

Tasting notes
A lovely medium ruby color, the wine presents deep and brooding aromas of black fruit, dark chocolate and char with a touch of dried herbs. The vibrant palate is tightly structured with flavors of dark fruits, thyme and mocha elements.

Rating
 Wine Advocate 90 points (Oct 2011)
Matured in French oak, 30% new, for 12 months, the 2009 Pinot Noir has a pale to medium ruby color and aromas of red cherries, red currants and warm cranberries over Mediterranean herbs, underbrush and moss covered bark. Medium bodied with a good amount of taut fruit, it has a low level of fine tannins, crisp acid and a long earthy finish. Drink it now to 2015+.

Technical notes
The grapes were hand harvested and fermented traditionally - of which a portion was fermented whole cluster in open-top tanks. The wine was hand-plunged and inoculated with indigenous yeasts. The wine spent a month on its skins for tannin development prior to gentle pressing through a basket press. It matured for 16 months in French barrels (30% new) before minimal filtration.
