Maude Pinot Noir 2013

Maude Pinot Noir Central Otago 2013

L’s good friends J and B came over for dinner. They love their Pinot Noir, and have great taste. They know I do too! This wine they brought to share with us while we enjoyed some great scotch fillet steaks together.

Out of Wanaka, Central Otago. Dark carmine. 14% alc. The wine had a lovely savoury nose. Dark cherries and plums. Dried herbs.  Not too big, but a bit going on here nonetheless.

In the mouth there were velvety tannins, lots of fruit, and no metallic notes or bitter finish which can point to under-extraction and high cropping rates. A bit brambly too.

Noice choice.
