Neudorf ‘Home Vineyard’ Moutere Nelson Pinot Noir 2009

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Nelson
Review Date : 21-Apr-2011
Made from 50% mixed Dijon clones – 777, 667, 113, 114 and 115, 27% Pommard, 13% clone 22 and 10% old 10/5, fully destemmed and given a cold soak, and indigenous yeast fermented to 13.5% alc. The wine was aged 12 months in 30% new French oak barrels. Moderately deep ruby-red colour with purple hues and a pale edge, this has a full, rich, layered nose with brambly dark red berry and cherry fruits with complex dried herb nuances and violetty perfumes. The aromas are dense and powerfully expressed. Medium full-bodied on palate, this is a fulsome, densely presented wine with richness and concentration, yet retains a remarkable sense of stylishness and elegance. There is an openness and approachability, with the appealing sweetness of the dark berry and cherry fruit the highlight. This is balanced by fine-grained, but significant tannins. The wine finishes with real length. This is a wonderful, hedonistic, single-site expression that will drink with immense pleasure over the next 6-8+ years. 100 cases plus some magnums made. 19.5/20 Apr 2011 RRP $79.00
