Neudorf Moutere Pinot Gris 2011 and Home Vineyard Pinot Noir 2010

30-May-2012

The latest news at Neudorf is that they have experienced a brilliant harvest for 2012, and the wines will be a fitting marker for winemaker John Kavanagh's last vintage there. Todd Stevens from Felton Road will be moving north from Bannockburn to take over John's role. Todd has had extensive experience with Pinot Noir, thus the style and quality of Pinot Noir as developed by Tim Finn at Neudorf will be in good hands. Although Chardonnay is seen to be the signature variety for Neudorf, Pinot Noir has in reality joined it at the flagship level. Neudorf Vineyards is one of this country's very best wine producers and all of the wines that flow from Tim and Judy Finn's winery in the Upper Moutere are top examples of what is made in New Zealand. Here, I review the company's Moutere Pinot Gris 2011 and the ‘Home Vineyard‘ Moutere Pinot Noir 2010, regarded as their top white and red Pinot expressions, just recently released. www.neudorf.co.nz
