Neudorf Moutere Nelson Pinot Noir 2009

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Nelson
Review Date : 16-Apr-2011
Moderately full, deep, dark ruby-red in colour with youthful purple hues, this has a very elegant, refined bouquet of beautifully perfumed red and dark berry fruits, dark red florals with a little oak lift. Still tight, this is quite ethereal on nose and promises to open out. Very finely constructed on palate, the flavours of dark red berries and cherries are somewhat restrained at present, but excellent concentration is apparent with underlying power, depth and weight. The wine also features silken textures from very fine-grained tannin extraction and acidity providing excellent tension and vibrancy. The finish is long, fine, stylish and dry. Another two years will see it to open up, and it will drink extremely well over the following 5-7 years. Made from 62% old vine 10/5 clone, 38% mixed clones 10/5, 22 and Burgundy, from the ‘Home' and ‘Pomona' vineyards. Fully destemmed and given a cold soak and indigenous yeast fermented to 14.0% alc. The wine was aged for 12 months in 26% new French oak barrels. 506 cases made. 19.0/20 Apr 2011 RRP $49.00
