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

Whilst the Pinot Noir grape varietal has its origins in France, and is most closely associated with fine Burgundy wines, it is now grown in almost every wine producing country in the world. There are many reasons for this – the densely packed, deep black bunches of fruits are responsible for making a wide variety of excellent wines, generally agreed to be amongst the most drinkable and accessible one can find. With flavors ranging from currants and red and black berries, to more earthy, spicy notes, Pinot Noir is a versatile varietal which is revered for its relatively light body and beautifully vivid red color However, the grapes themselves are notoriously susceptible to various diseases, and struggle in fluctuating climates. This has not stopped wineries planting and cultivating these vines, though, as Pinot Noir, when grown carefully and treated properly, is a grape with a wide and increasing fan-base, and more often than not produces wonderful wines.

Country: New Zealand

New Zealand is widely regarded as one of the most beautiful and ecologically diverse countries in the world, and the wines which are produced there are a fine representation of this diversity and overall quality. With beautifully long and warm summers, a brisk oceanic climate and mile upon mile of gently sloping mountainsides, the vineyards which have sprung up there over the past century have brought about truly fantastic results, with wine now contributing a considerable amount to the economy of the country. In recent years, New Zealand wines have won some of the most prestigious awards available in the wine world, with most of the lauded wineries coming from the Auckland region, where there has been considerable effort to replicate the finest wines of the Bordeaux region of France. The Bordeaux grape varietals (Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot and Malbec) all flourish in the mineral rich soil of the region, and the results have been outstanding, marking New Zealand a strong contender for finest New World wine country.
