The Ned Pinot Noir 2011 Southern Valleys, Marlborough, New Zealand

Purchased at Jacques in the Old Town Düsseldorf for €12.90 May 2013

No oak, lots of cherry fruit, fairly persistent, but when initially drunk at room temperature (24) the high alcohol content (14%) rather overwhelmed everything. Half an hour in the fridge reduced the temperature of the wine to 17/18 and the fruit then dominated, a much more pleasant experience.
