Neudorf Moutere Nelson Pinot Noir 2010

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Nelson
Review Date : 12-Mar-2012
A blend of fruit from the ‘Home' vineyard comprising 28% mixed Burgundy clones, 13% 10/5, 15% clone 22, 12% Abel, 12% 777 and 8% clone 5, and from ‘Pomona', 12% old vine 10/5. The fruit was fully destemmed and indigenous yeast fermented to 14.0% alc., the wine aged 12 months in French oak barrels. Bright ruby red colour with purple hues at heart and a hint of garnet on rim. The nose is full and concentrated with dark berry and cherry fruits with notes of black plums, complex herb and oak spicing, and ethereal floral perfumes, emerging in the glass. Medium-full bodied, rich and broad mouthfilling flavours of dark berry and cherry fruit, plums, minerals and nuances of violets with hints of game detail the palate. The richness and depth of fruit is underlined by very fine-grained, powdery tannins, the extraction serious and significant. With the density is poise and excellent acid tension, leading to a very long, lingering finish. A serious Pinot Noir with layers of flavours, supported by very fine extraction, this will develop over the next 8-10 years. Match with fine game dishes and hard cheeses. 506 cases made. 19.5/20 Mar 2012 RRP $49.90
