Neudorf Moutere Nelson Pinot Noir 2011

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Nelson
Review Date : 08-Mar-2013
Old vine 10/5 and 5 clones and younger Dijon 777, 667, 115, 113 and Abel clones from the ‘Home’ block and Pomona, hand-picked, fully destemmed and given a cold soak, indigenous yeast fermented to 14.5% alc., the wine spending around 25 days on skins and aged 12 months in 29% new French oak. Full ruby-red colour, a little lighter on rim. The bouquet is tightly bound and concentrated with detailed, ethereal aromas of ripe black cherry and berry fruits, black plums, lifted violetty florals, and nuances of iron and minerals. Medium-full bodied, a tightly packed and concentrated core of black fruits and minerals is framed by considerable, but fine-grained tannins. The palate retains proportion and elegance, though the extraction, depth and density are significant. Rich, sweet nuances of spices, oak and iron emerge along with a growing presence and texture on the palate as it flows to a very long, sustained and dry finish. This is a fine-grained and seriously constructed and concentrated, youthful Pinot Noir that will unfold considerable interest over the next 8-10 years. Serve with roast red meats, casseroles and hard cheeses. 750 cases made. 19.0+/20 Mar 2013 RRP $49.90
