Maude, Pinot Noir Central Otago 2018
Pinot Noir 100%
Aromas of dark cherry, plum and dried herbs team up with a palate that displays layers of dark fruit flavours entwined with velvety but structural tannins.
Traditionally open-top fermented with some whole-bunch and a month on skins and then aged in oak barriques for 10 months, 30% of which are new. It's unfined and unfiltered so vegan-friendly.
Wine Advocate 90-92pts (2016) - There's only one barrel of the 2016 Chassagne Montrachet 1er Cru Les Chenevottes, but it's one of the highlights of the range this year, unfurling in the glass with complex aromas of lemon and lime zest, pastry cream, iodine and smoky reduction. On the palate, it's medium-bodied, deep and complete, with a beautifully satiny texture and superb balance. It's not a powerful Chenevottes, but it's supremely elegant.
