Good pinot: Maude Pinot Noir 2007

Another short wine review.  People talk about good value pinot noir being hard to find.  This one should be on your list.  Medium intensity ruby in colour.  Aromatics of cherry, earth and redcurrant.  A high acid palate with medium to long length, a sense of balance and flavours of cherry.  Ready to drink now, this is a good example of Central Otago pinot noir that over delivers for its price.  Good to Very Good
