Neudorf Tom's Block Pinot Noir 2017
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. REBECCA GIBB MW
It's been a while between drinks for me and the Finn family of Neudorf but they're always front of mind in upper echelon NZ wine production and a great yardstick for Nelson wines. Tom's Block Pinot Noir is reliably good too.
It has that hallmark Nelson ripe cherry and salted herb aroma I so often look for in regional pinot noirs. Pretty perfume and a touch savoury, let's say. The palate is slender but packs in dark cherry flavours, more of the salted herbs, a little smokiness and some graphite-like mineral character. It feels sleek and shy, understated and fine. It's a really, really pleasing wine here. MIKE BENNIE
Neudorf are the undisputed stars of New Zealand's Nelson wine region. And this wine, Tom's Block Pinot Noir, is really hitting the spot in terms of quality, drinkability, and affordability. 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, which is drinking perfectly now.

This is fresh and lively and has intense red-cherry aromas with dark herbal tones. The palate is deeply flavored with a fresh, crunchy red-cherry core. Neatly proportioned tannins. Good value. JAMES SUCKLING
