Subtle fragrances of white and yellow stone fruits with flint and nuttiness from barrel fermentation with natural yeasts. The palate is seamless, elegantly concentrated with texture and drive. Made only from selected vines in the Mt Maude ‘old vine’ Chardonnay, the pedigree of this vineyard shines through in this stylish Chardonnay.
Sarah-Kate & Dan Dineen - Winemakers
Hand harvested from our Mt Maude family vineyard in Wanaka, planted in 1994. Foot stomped, basket pressed and fermented dirty (juice that hasn’t been clarified) in seasoned French oak puncheons. Complete malolactic fermentation followed with a further 9 months maturation in
barrel with minimal movement or fining.

About Maude Wines

Since leaving their last roles as winemakers / general managers at the prestigious Tower Estate and Tempus Two wineries in the Hunter Valley, winemakers Sarah-Kate (SK) and Dan Dineen have quietly built a winery, a new home, developed the Maude wine label and started a family amidst the stunning back drop of Lake Wanaka in Central Otago, New Zealand. It is no surprise to wine industry insiders that their wine, Maude, has become an instant success. But like any supposed 'instant' success there lies an enormous amount of energy, experience and professionalism behind a project, which epitomises this winemaking couple.
