Thanks everyone. Yes, the ISO capabilities are remarkable, as we all know. With this particular shot, it let me overcome a problem with quite strong wind (not me, in the surroundings!). Because of the D7000's high ISO capacity, I was able to increase the shutter speed and overcome the issue.
Peter: Yes, I guess you would. However, I've taken shots of that plant with my D80 and the same flash, and the tonal range isn't the same. I'm guessing that it's something to do with the 14-bit images.

Well, if I had to guess it hasn't got anything to do with 14 bits or 16 mp. Neither of those parameters are significant factors in producing better colours than say 12 bits or 12 mp. 14 bits also does not increase dynamic range in any way.
What might make whites better are:
- improved white balance algorithms - improved exposure - wider, better balanced flash bulb spectrum - higher quality pixels - improved raw image processing in-camera and in raw conversion - higher lens quality (colour cast, micro contrast)
