Neudorf features in any conversation of NZ's finest wineries and we've managed to secure a small parcel of the sought after Tom's Block Pinot Noir. Medium bodied with plum and spice notes on the palate, this is already accessible and in excellent form.
Rebecca Gibb MW writes "It caresses the mouth with its round, chocolatey tannins that leave you licking your cheeks. If KFC’s chicken is finger licking good, Tom’s is palate-licking good. This is a pretty freaking delicious and super young wine. 93 Points."
Cameron Douglas MS writes "Earthy then fruity, brown spices then toasty French oak aromas, plum then rose, quite complex, attractive and ready. On the palate - delicious! No mistaking the varietal signature with flavours of dark red berries and plum then clove and other baking spice flavours. A natural earth flavour with gravel and stone then clay and dried herb. As the wine begins to relax and open up in glass the harmony also arrives with an even fine texture from the tannins and acid line. Tannins are mostly chalky with a fine mealy layer adding length and depth. Another fine example from the Neudorf team and fine vintage reflection."
Jamie Goode writes "This is bright and expressive, with sweet ripe black cherry and blackberry fruit with hints of tar and spice. There’s a lovely crunchy structure here: it’s really fruity and pretty with some cranberry brightness as well as a bit of fruity depth. Great balance to this wine."
