Neudorf Moutere Nelson Pinot Noir 2013

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Nelson
Review Date : 23-Feb-2015
Hand-picked fruit, clones 5, 10/5, 667, 777, 113 and Abel, from the ‘Neudorf Home’ and ‘Pomona’ vineyards, Moutere, from vines 15-34 y.o., fully destemmed and indigenous yeast fermented to 14.0% alc., the wine aged 12 months in 21% new French oak, the wine aged a further 4 months on fine lees in tank. Moderately deep, even ruby-red colour, a little lighter on rim. This has a full, softly rich nose with layers of ripe dark red berry fruits infused with aromatic dark herbs complexed with ethereal herb and savoury earth notes. This has depth and concentration, unfolding red florals and soft oak elements with aeration. Medium-full bodied, rich and succulent flavours of ripe red berry fruits are harmoniously melded with layers of savoury dark herbs, liquorice and game nuances. The fruit is lifted by red florals, and supported by fine-grained tannins providing a velvety texture and flow. The acidity is fresh and balanced, lending good vibrancy and enhancing the richness. The wine carries through to a very long, sustained finish with spice, herb and earthy detail. This is an elegantly rich, succulent and complexed layered Pinot Noir with fine tannin structure. Match with wild duck, pork and hare over the next 6-9 years. 794 cases made. 19.0+/20 Feb 2015 RRP $54.00
