cracka review

Neudorf’s understanding of Pinot Noir can be seen across their range but it’s their understanding of texture and balance that gets us giddy whenever we try their wines. Slightly herbaceous with brambly fruits, the palate delivers the intensity of summer berries and a little herbal complexity. The harmony is heavenly, a wine that grows in stature in the glass making it a versatile match for meaty fish or even game dishes like duck.

expert reviews

Mike Bennie (2014 Vintage) says
Spicy, clove-meets-tobacco wood scents meshed to dark cherry and red plum fruit character opens the wine. It sets you up for a pinot noir of depth, fleshy fruitiness and yet bones of structure from fine tannin and a wash of glassy acidity. The wine sits mellow and quite flat in the palate, perks up on a mid palate soft-sweetness, finishes dusty and peppery. Roast duck came to mind.

Nick Stock (2007 Vintage) says
Very bright and tidy pinot with some maritime oyster-shell aromas and breezy, spiced dark fruits. The palate has pleasing richness and depth with sweet fruit flavour, dark cherry in the main, and a smooth approachable sweet tannin build to the finish. Earth and spice to close.

winemaker's notes

Elegant. Stylish. Not overburdened with sweet fruit or with strong tannins. Quite simply a wine which is enticing, pleasing and flows with grace.

The nose is a fascinating balance between typical Pinot fruit notes ( cherry, plum) and typical Pinot savoury notes (degraded vegetation, autumn forest). These are melded perfectly resulting in a melange of subtle but confident aromas.

On the palate the wine is serious but not overwrought. The refreshing mineral notes are in play with the chocolate and cherry.

Tannin structure is elegant and fine. The oak handling and fruit ripeness are harmonious and the overall concept of the wine is well bred approachability. The wine is most attractive and eminently drinkable.
