Neudorf Moutere Pinot Noir 2016, 75cl
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, manuka 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.

"Pale garnet fading to ruby and a transparent rim. 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. Not heavy enough to stand up to hearty, very meaty foods but this would be great with fish.
(Jancis Robinson, JR Purple Pages, September 2018)
"Attractively-scented pinot noir with a mix of fruit (plum, cherry and dark berry), savoury (fresh herb) and floral (violet) flavours. An elegant, tightly-structured wine with a backbone of fine, drying tannins that should promote good cellaring potential.
