Neudorf ‘Home Vineyard’ Moutere Nelson Pinot Noir 2010

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Nelson
Review Date : 04-Feb-2013
Medium deep ruby-red, stylishly complex in layers of red fruits along with dried herb, spices and florals. Full-bodied and based on a complete textural palate with a complex showing of flavours of fruits and dried herbs, whole-bunch like elements. Great drive and linear presence, and the construction to see aging. 19.0/20 Jan 2013 83% ‘Home Vineyard' Pommard and mixed Burgundy clones, with 11% old 10/5 and 6% clone 22 fruit, destemmed, given a cold soak and indigenous yeast fermented to 14.5% alc. with temperatures up to 27°C. The wine spent 22-25 days on skins and was aged 12 months in 40% new French oak barrels. Dark, deep ruby-red colour. This has a concentrated and brooding nose that gradually unfolds to reveal dark berry and plum fruit flavours lifted with dark red floral and violet notes, dark herbs and spices. Medium-full bodied, tightly bound and concentrated flavours of bark berries, cherries and plums form a powerful and packed core with an underlying richness. Subtle nuances of spices, dark herbs and oak add interest and detail. The palate is framed by very fine-grained, firm tannins which provide serious mouthfeel, enriched by the fruit sweetness. Some alcohol is noticeable and this contributes to the drive to a very long, lingering finish of dark fruits and spices. A tightly bound, concentrated and structured Pinot Noir, this will develop richness and layers of interest over the next 8-10+ years. 170 cases made. 19.0+/20 May 2012 RRP $79.90
