Welcome to Maude Wines e-cellar door

Maude is a small winery based in beautiful Wanaka, Central Otago.  Our namesake & 4 Ha Mt Maude Vineyard was planted in 1994 on the steep north facing slopes of the sheltered Maungawera Valley, Wanaka, and single vineyard expressions from this vineyard reign supreme in the Maude range.

Winemaking couple Sarah-Kate & Dan Dineen’s philosophy of minimal winemaking intervention, striving to produce wines that reflect the site & season and creating Pinots with great expression & personality.


Sauvignon Blanc 2022, Central Otago

Elegant, mineral centric with scents of fresh citrus and orchard fruits, herbs and hay, grapefruit and yellow flowers. Flavours on the palate are a mix of lemon and peach which transition into gooseberry and fresh herbs. Excellent texture and length with a fine mealy mouthfeel emphasising rocks and clay, fine fruit tannins and acidity. A delicious, salivating expression ready as an aperitif or with fresh shell fish. Lengthy finish, balanced and well made. Best drinking from 2022 through 2027.

 Rosé 2021, Central Otago

Fantastic colour and bouquet of sweet rose and ripe cranberry, red cherry and pacific rose apple. Pure, fresh and enticing, a silky-cream texture, core of red berry fruit and apple skin flavours, contrasting acid line and lengthy finish. Be quick!

Dry Riesling 2021, Wanaka, Central Otago

Pure, fresh, ripe and lifted bouquet, fragrant and floral. Aromas of fresh lemon and lime, green apple and apricot stone. There’s no mistaking the minerality with a polished stone and delicate saline suggestions. Salivating, delicious, fresh and dry on the palate. The core of fruit and acidity drive the flavour journey across the palate flanked by minerality and a touch of white spice and lick of salt on the finish. A fantastic wine, best drinking from 2022 through 2035+.
