Neudorf ‘Tom’s Block’ Nelson Pinot Noir 2013

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Nelson
Review Date : 23-Feb-2015
Light ruby-red colour with slight purple hues, pale on rim. The nose is very fine and tightly bound with penetrating, ethereal aromas of dark red berry fruits and savoury red floral, dried herb and nutty elements. Some raspberry and liquorice notes unfold. Medium-bodied, this is elegantly concentrated with luscious and aromatic dark red berry fruits with savoury interest, along with dried herbs, minerals and red florals. The fruit combines with fine-grained tannins to form a firm core and structure. The fruit sweetness is enhanced by lacy acidity and the flavours carry to a very long and sustained finish with raspberry liqueur nuances. This is an elegant, finely concentrated Pinot Noir with sweet and gently luscious red berry fruit and some savoury detail. Match with wild duck and pork dishes over the next 6-7+ years. Hand-picked fruit, clones 5, 10/5, 667, 777, 113, Abel and 115, from 84% Moutere clay gravels and 16% Waimea alluvial gravels, 100% destemmed and indigenous yeast fermented to 14.0% alc., the wine aged 10 months in 22% new French oak. 2,181 cases made. 18.0+/20 Feb 2015 RRP $33.00
