Winemaker Notes

Elegant. Stylish. Not overburdened with sweet fruit or with strong tannins. Quite simply a wine which is enticing, pleasing and flows with grace. The nose is a fascinating balance between typical Pinot fruit notes (cherry, plum) and typical Pinot savory notes (degraded vegetation, autumn forest). These are melded perfectly resulting in a melange of subtle but confident aromas. On the palate the wine is serious but not overwrought. The refreshing mineral notes are in play with the chocolate and cherry. Tannin structure is elegant and fine. The oak handling and fruit ripeness are harmonious and the overall concept of the wine is well bred approachability. The wine is most attractive and eminently drinkable.

Blend: 100% Pinot Noir

WE 89
Wine Enthusiast

Showing a nice bit of bottle age, this Pinot, from the Nelson region at the top of the South Island, offers up soft attractive redberry aromas along with dried flowers and savory herbal notes. After some time in glass, the fruit feels sweeter, almost confected. The body is light to medium, with a silky texture and a soft grip of tannins but there’s a bitter note that’s a little distracting and feeling of flatness. There’s complexity too, however, and this should continue to age for five years or so.

Neudorf Neudorf Vineyards Winery Image
Established in 1978 by Tim and Judy Finn, Neudorf Vineyards are nestled in the warm gravelly soils of the Moutere Hills in the Nelson region at the top of New Zealand’s South Island. Surrounded by hop gardens, apple orchards and berry farms, the vineyards’ virgin gravelly soil is of naturally low fertility and retains enough moisture to support grapevines through the dry summer months.

Clear skies allow for rapid cooling at night, nurturing the slow development of flavors in the grapes. This combination of climate and soil type produces long living wines of great intensity, showing concentrated but not overtly fruity characters. Despite an enviable track record and continuing success, the Finns have kept their winery small (around 6,000 cases annually) and devoted to the production of top flight wines.

New Zealand Pinot Noir has jumped onto the world wine stage with recent but rapid growth in quality and recognition. Pinot Noir didn’t develop a significant presence in New Zealand until the late 1980’s, and production stayed small in the beginning. But plantings doubled between 2003 and 2013, quality jumped and the world took notice. This is partly due to the propogation of one specific clone, the Abel clone (named after the customs agent who discovered vine cuttings hidden in a boot) that is rumored to be originally from Burgundy’s famous, Domaine de la Romanee Conti.

Pinot Noir is grown throughout New Zealand, but the majority hails from the South Island. The most important North Island region is Wairarapa, near the southern tip. Here the thin, poor soils and frost danger keep yields low. But the long growing season and dramatic diurnal temperature shift lead to dry, earthy Pinot Noir wines that in good years, show terrific red fruit and lovely depth.

The South Island in New Zealand has three regions of great significance. Marlborough Pinot Noirs hail mostly from the Awatere Valley, which is slightly drier and cooler than the Wairau Valley. The grape is grown for both sparkling and still wines, with the latter showing improvement as the vines age. The Canterbury region is composed of small producers making handcrafted Pinot Noirs that show tantalizing promise. Finally, Central Otago in New Zealand is the world’s southernmost wine region. Summers here are short but extremely sunny and dry, with cold nights that preserve grape acidity. Otago Pinot Noir wines show earthy and herbal notes, as well as vivacious red fruit flavors that are as bright as they are ripe. It is unusual, in fact, to find a Pinot that is under 14% alcohol. Taken together, New Zealand Pinot Noirs offer a wealth of delightful options for fans of this variety.
