Neudorf

Neudorf Moutere Single Vineyard Pinot Gris 2014 14% Nelson
Quite a dense and richly textured bouquet with aromas of quince and honeysuckle, gentle wood spice suggestions and a mix of white pear, lemon and apple. On the palate - just dry with a citrus peel, quince and honey beginning; medium+ acidity, soft nutty spice and a juicy core. Overall a very thoughtful example with serious drinkers in mind. Well made and worthy of your attention.

Neudorf Moutere Pinot Noir 2013 14% Nelson
A strong Pinot Noir bouquet with dark red berry fruits laced with new oak wood spice, a savory whole bunch suggestion adds depth and texture to the aromas; a generous and forward bouquet overall with medium+ complexity and village burgundy feel. On the palate - dry, savory and lush with flavors of light red fruits laced with wood spice; medium tannins and medium+ acidity demonstrate this wine's potential for ageing as well as its drinkability now. Well made, coming into balance and highly recommended.
4.5 stars

Neudorf 'Tom's Block' Pinot Noir 2013 13.5% Nelson
A striking bouquet with much of what I like about Pinot Noir on display - complex with layers of light red fruit which are both just ripe to ripe, a savory mineral layer that teases the nose; light old rose moments and a measured use of new and not so new - oak. On the palate - dry, complex, young, savory; light red fruits, fine medium tannins, moderate (+) oak. Another fine example of Nelson Pinot Noir.
