When East meets West it is a celebration of two blocks of mature Mt Maude Vineyard Pinot Noir
which face opposite directions. It marks a different direction in style too. A bewitching perfume ofviolets, strawberry, clove, undergrowth and spice. One with succulence, breadth and softness.
Only harvested from the East and West blocks of our mature Mt Maude family vineyard in Wanaka, planted in 1994. The complete use of whole bunches, no crushing, no plunging or pumping. Instead the tank is sealed for fermentation and let to ƒ??do its own thingƒ?? for 3 weeks before basket pressing and barrelling.

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.
