Maude 2015 and 2014 Central Otago Releases

29-Sep-2015
In a very short time, Maude Wines has become Wanaka’s largest winery and one of the cornerstones of the Central Otago wine industry, with Dan and Sarah-Kate Dineen making a range of wines from fruit that blends parcels from different sub-regions to represent the essence of Central Otago as a whole, as well as limited-release single vineyard ‘Mt Maude’ bottlings from the 4 ha family vineyard in the Maungawera Valley planted in 1994. As well as looking after their own wines, Dan and Sarah-Kate operate a custom crush facility, where a good number of some of Central Otago’s most highly regarded labels are made. It is this all-round ability and experience that has propelled Maude to a position of considerable importance, such that every release is now highly anticipated. Here, I review a selection of 2015 and 2014 releases under the ‘Maude’ and ‘Mt Maude’ labels. www.maudewines.com
