Neudorf Tom's Block Pinot Noir, Nelson, New Zealand 2014
"Deep red colour with a touch of purple in the rim. The bouquet is subdued and earth-bound, with subtle dark cherry notes; the wine is rich, fleshy and soft, fresh and smooth textured, with a prominent toasty barrel note on the back-palate. Very good wine."
Cameron Douglas MS
"A complete and generous Pinot Noir bouquet. On the palate - crisp, youthful, fruity, firm and dry; flavours of ripe cherry and cranberry with layers of oak spice, medium tannins and plenty of acidity."
100% Pinot Noir
Upper Moutere, Nelson, New Zealand
Elegant. Stylish. Not overburdened with sweet fruit or with strong tannins. Quite simply a wine which is enticing, pleasing and flows with grace.
On the palate the wine is serious but not overwrought. The refreshing mineral notes are in play with the chocolate and cherry. Tannin structure is elegant and fine. The oak handling and fruit ripeness are harmonious and the overall concept of the wine is well-bred approachability.
