This was the first vintage of Moutere Pinot Noir we held back for three years in bottle before release. 2012 was such a year – it was always going to be a wine that displayed great density and raw power, largely due to the small crop and marvellous Indian summer of vintage 2012. This is one of our greatest wines. We regard our Neudorf Moutere Pinot Noir as a wine of pedigree, a wine of personality, and a wine that rewards patience. We felt now was the time to revisit it.
Christmas Day aromas from the Northern Hemisphere – wood smoke, chocolate, crushed berries and the spice. This rather romantic tasting note seems to bring together the complexity and pleasure of the wine. It signals celebration and familiarity. Structurally the wine has serious “torque” and belongs firmly in the Moutere stable. A wine with current appeal and the promise of a secured future. Great Pinot is about flow – the wine moves across the palate with ease and leaves a final flourish which lingers. This enticing palate is framed by subtly integrated tannins which provide a structure to contain the exuberant fruit notes. All very seductive.
“This is quite a wine.” Nick Stock for James Suckling
