Widely recognized as one of the premier wineries in Nelson, Neudorf Vineyards was established in 1978 by Tim and Judy Finn when New Zealand’s wine industry was still in its infancy. The project was a true labor of love; the couple initially managed 3 jobs each and 4 mortgages to realize their vision. Driven by a ‘back to the land’ movement, the team at Neudorf believes that great wines have a basis of fruit concentration, length and sense of place which can only be formed in the vineyard. They feel their primary task is to grow grapes which express the site, then take the essence of that fruit and preserve it as wine. It is with a light hand that the winemakers play with balance and complexity along the way to ultimately produce award-winning wines of finesse and character.

Tasting notes
Warm cranberry, pomegranate and red currant aromas with hints of violets, damp earth and Ceylon tea merge with red berry and earth flavors. The savory finish features fine grained tannins and refreshing acidity.

Rating
 Wine Advocate 93 points (Jan 2015)
Pale to medium ruby-purple colored, the 2011 Moutere Pinot Noir offers tons of kirsch, pomegranate and mulberry notes with underlying lavender and cinnamon stick hints plus a waft of tree bark. It bursts in the mouth with red fruit and earthy flavors, sporting a solid structure of firm grainy tannins and lively acid, finishing with great length.

Technical notes
Old vine clones 10/5, 5, Abel and younger Dijon clones 777, 667,115, 113 were hand-picked from Neudorf Home Block and Pomona Vineyards. The fruit was destemmed and cold macerated prior to fermentation on its skins in small batch fermentors. Following an extended maceration, the wine aged for 12 months in French oak barrels (29% new) and was bottled without fining or filtration.
