“Pale ruby. Definitely earthier nose than all the Marlborough wines I have been tasting. Very juicy yet with lots of grainy tannins and depth. Serious wine.” Jancis Robinson MW
“Poised. Elegant, crushed velvet in vivid shimmering notes of red and purple. 96/100” Anne Krebiehl MW UK
“Deeply spicy, darker fruits and earthy notes are matched with a handy, sappy thread. Lots of aromatic layers here. The palate’s unashamedly built on clay-driven tannins. Reliably shaped and building through to the finish. All darker cherries here. 94/100” Nick Stock for jamessuckling.com
Neudorf Moutere Pinot has a long and celebrated record of excellence but this wine, this vintage, under winemaker Todd Stevens shows an ethereal beauty which lifts its head above the crowd. Elegant. Understated. Precise. Flow and purpose are evident without becoming overt.
The hand of the winemaker is invisible yet it retains the trademark Neudorf structure. The wine shows juicy acidity, so often the forgotten hallmark of great Pinot Noir.
Succulent with some lovely savoury notes with a touch a liquorice and dried florals. The oak is simply part of the wine and offers gentle support without interfering with the final push of the fruit across the palate.
“Mineral and ripe, light red fruit led bouquet, silty, stony soils, smoke and spices oak, definitive complexity. 94/100” Cameron Douglas MS for Decanter Magazine
“Expressive palate with dense but pure fruit and smoky, well- integrated oak combining to give coffee and delicate licorice. 94/100“ Joanna Simon UK
