Neudorf ‘Tom’s Block’ Nelson Pinot Noir 2012

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Nelson
Review Date : 16-Nov-2013
Clones 5, 10/5, 667, 777, Abel and 115 from 89% Moutere clay sites and 11% Waimea gravels, fully destemmed and indigenous yeast fermented to 14.0% alc, the wine aged 10 months in 25% new French oak. Dark, deep ruby-red colour with purple hues, paler on rim, youthful in appearance. This has a bright, vibrantly fruity nose showing a concentrated melange of dark red berries and cherries, with subtle dark herb elements, lifted by violet floral and oak nuances. Medium-full bodied, a fine grained tannin structure encases concentrated and rich, dark red berry and cherry fruit flavours. The fruit has sweetness with underlying herb detail, and grows in depth and power. The mouthfeel is dry and textured, the extract supporting the fruit drive and energy to a long and sustained finish which combines succulence and freshness. This is a bright, concentrated and rich fruited Pinot Noir with fine, grainy textures and the structure to ensure 5-7 years of aging. Serve with roasted pork, lamb and beef, and with semi-hard cheeses. 2,700 cases made. 18.5/20 Nov 2013 RRP $33.00
