Wonderfully deep nose of visceral, dried notes with a hint of licorice and spice, larger red and black fruits and very fine tannins. The wine flows across the palate with ease towards a refined and elegant finish.
Overall impression is of a full yet sleek wine of great structure and integration. Vintage 2010 was a great one for New Zealand Pinot Noir and this Neudorf wine will not disappoint.
"Pale to medium ruby-purple colored, the 2010 Moutere Pinot Noir has a slightly reduced, rubber and tar character to begin, giving way to a promising core of dark berries, mulberries, toast, pepper, tree bark and loam. Medium-bodied with a medium level of grainy tannins and mouth-filling black berry and savory flavors, it finishes long, with a touch of minerality in the finish.
