Nick Stock: Checking in on the best Pinot Noir

Across the Nelson and Marlborough region there are number of wineries that are renowned for producing outstanding Pinot Noir wines, however, in a recent report by Nick Stock regional stars include Neudorf, which works with old vines, and Mahana, run by Michael Glover.
Stock described both the 2014 and 2015 Neudorf Moutere Pinot Noirs as worthy of collecting and maturing; capable of attaining the kind of sweet decay that you find in the best older Burgundy wines with age.

There's a revolution fermenting...

There’s a revolution fermenting in the Moutere Hills and Waimea Plains with the return of one of Nelson’s wine sons to the region. Michael Glover has left a radical career in Australia to don the black beret of Mahana, Che Guevara-style, and take up a wine-growing crusade that could create more converts to the exciting wines made in this region.
