Maude Vineyards ‘Mount Maude’ Pinot Noir 2012

14% abv

Beautifully scented, the Mount Maude 2012 Pinot Noir boasts aromas of dark cherry, blackcurrant, bramble and dried herb. Medium – full bodied with layers of dark fruits, fine tannins and whole bunch complexities which unfold into this harmonious Pinot Noir from our mature family vineyard.

Hand-harvested Mount Maude fruit, the characteristic of this vineyard site is the extended “hang-time” which allows full phenolic ripeness and whole bunch fermentation. The Mount Maude family vineyard in Wanaka, was planted in 1994. Characteristics of the Mount Maude Vineyard Pinot Noir, with its extended growing season, giving the additional “hang time” allowing the grapes to ripen fully, where seeds brown, skins toughen, flavours develop and most importantly stalks fully lignify. This enables us to use whole bunch (50%) in the ferment, creating a wine with sinewy structure from stalk tannin and the “crushed herb and spice” aromas which are the precursor to the ethereal forest floor, violet or alluring perfume great pinot’s have. Fermented very traditionally in open topped tanks, hand plunged and using indigenous yeasts. Three weeks on skins for tannin development prior to gentle pressing through our basket press. Matured in French oak barriques (40% new) for nine months followed by a movement into one year old French oak barriques where the wine rested for another eight months.

This family-owned and run winery was established by husband and wife winemaking team Sarah-Kate and Dan Dineen. Planted in 1994, the Mount Maude vineyard is on the steep, north-facing slopes of the sheltered Maungawera Valley just outside of Wanaka, Central Otago.

Maude and its neighbouring peak Mount Gold present classic Central Otago conditions; crisp purity of air with strong diurnal temperature swings - this makes for very small harvests of outstanding fruit at the very margin of feasible production - when the weather is kind, and it frequently is. These hand-crafted wines are made in Maude’s custom built Wanaka winery using fruit sourced from Cromwell, Bannockburn and Wanaka. The Mount Maude wines come from the estate vineyards.
