SK and Dan are livin’ the dream. Formerly winemakers in the Hunter Valley, they jumped across the ditch and built a new winery, a new home, started Maude Wines…oh and throw starting a new family in the mix too! All at the base of Mount Maude with the stunning backdrop of Lake Wanaka.
The reason for the move? A little something they call the holy grail of winemaking…Pinot Noir perfection.
If it’s perfection they’re after, it’s near perfection they’ve got after absolutely cleaning up at the 2018 NZ Wine of the Year Awards, the official wine show of the NZ wine industry…
NZ Wine of the Year Champion (NZ Wine of the Year Awards 2018)
Best Wine – Otago (NZ Wine of the Year Awards 2018)
Champion Pinot Noir (NZ Wine of the Year Awards 2018)
Gold medal (NZ Wine of the Year Awards 2018)
“It will take a lifetime to truly understand the variety and how it performs under different conditions but SK and I will have a lot of fun learning.”
You’ll have a lot of fun too if Pinot Noir’s your digs. Medium to full bodied in style, it’s the classic Central style with dark fruits and velvety tannins.
