Neudorf Toms Block Pinot Noir 2016
"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.” Rebecca Gibb MW, UK
Another step in the evolution of Neudorf Pinot Noir. Working with newer clones has changed the shape of material at hand for winemaker Todd Stevens.
As these additions to the Pinot vineyards settle down, we see a more fragrant, more supple wine in our glass. The nose has a deep and dark winter stone fruit note. The palate is a woven series of dark plum and cloves. Nelson pinot celebrates an underlying umami or savoury note and this is no exception. Nothing is out of balance in this bottle... there is ripe fruit, sauvory notes, a little spice and a lot of moreish.
As always Todd maintains that less and more and the wine has the “Neudorfness” we cherish. Our Moutere Clays provide an European edge – the fruit is kept in check with an uplifting minerality and vibrancy. A wine which never tires or bores but rather offers a full juicy mouthful with a lingering complex finish. Just as the wine flows to the end of your palate there is a surge of flavour maintaining a satisfying mouthfeel.
