"The nose is really quite intense and sweet, and then the palate is beautifully lifted, refreshing and transparent. Great poise. Lovely stuff! Already drinking well.... This would be
great with fish.” Jancis Robinson MW
Neudorf Moutere Pinot Noir has a reputation for elegance and ageability. This vintage continues the evolution under winemaker Todd Stevens. It's fragrant; expressing plums, exotic spice, cracked pepper, Horopito for kiwis, brambles, mänuka bark and wood
smoke. It's rich but not overblown. The tannins are finely tuned and chiselled creating a wine which is groomed and precise.
The Pinot Noir story in New Zealand has been changing as vine age takes hold and we celebrate Pinot of true beauty and restraint. We seek a melange of perfectly integrated flavours. In the Moutere we are happy to see Pinots with a refreshing, juicy acidity. Definitely deserving breast of duck, rack of lamb or grilled mushroom.
Cellar with absolute confidence.
"Attractive, spiced berry and biscuit aromas with an array of sweetly fragrant red flowers and red cherries. The palate is lively, juicy and fresh and delivers an exceptionally elegant and focused array of typical pinot-noir fruit in an approachable, elegant mode. 94 Points. "
