Professional Wine Reviews for Neudorf Tom's Block Pinot Noir 2013

Rated 93 by Decanter
Sourced from a plot a short distance from the estate vineyard, this has a similarly concentrated and earthy signature of the Upper Moutere section of the region, but is invariably a lighter, brighter and more singular style of wine from the estate Moutere bottling. Vibrant red cherries on the nose, there's attractive freshness here, some bracken and brown baking spices. Oak is bright but the fruit is on top. The palate is supple and full with really smoothly fleshy texture that holds fine, suspended tannins. Plenty of dark spiced cherry flavor, a flurry of toasty oak and a vibrant, lively kick of dark cherry flavor through the finish. Drink now. (Suckling)

Additional Information on Neudorf Tom's Block Pinot Noir 2013

Winery: Neudorf

Varietal: Pinot Noir

Pinot Noir is one of the planet's most widely grown and enjoyed grape varietals, and thanks to the popularity of the key wines it is associated with – Burgundy and Champagne – it has successfully spread from its native home in France to much of the wine producing world. Pinot Noir means 'black pine' in French, and this refers to the extremely dark, inky color of the fruit, and the fact that it grows in conical bunches, resembling a large pine cone. It has long been revered for its wide range of refreshing, summery flavors, and the fact that it produces red wines of a beautiful garnet color and light body. More recently, sparkling wines made exclusively with Pinot Noir have been extremely popular, and the orchard notes found in the fizzy 'blanc des noirs' wines mark out just how versatile this grape varietal really is. Despite being notoriously difficult to grow, it isn't hard to see why this grape is now found in vineyards all over the world, as it is synonymous with romance and decadence, quality and fantastic flavor

Country: New Zealand

As with nearby Australia, New Zealand has over the past century proven itself to be a superb location for producing high quality wines in vast amounts, with much of the cooler regions of both islands being used primarily for vine cultivation. New Zealand wineries are notable for their enthusiasm in regards to experimentation, and for utilizing modern technologies and methods to make the most of the imported grape varietals which flourish in the rich, fertile soils and oceanic climate. In recent years, it has been the New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc wines which have gained the most attention, as a result of their smoky character and ability to carry the mineral rich nature of the terroir they grow in. Changing consumer interests have brought about a considerable rise in the production of organic and sustainable wines in New Zealand, of which again, the Sauvignon Blanc varietals are leading the way in regards to excellence, flavor and overall character.
