    Fragrant with hints of violets and chocolate supported by elegant restrained tannins.

    This wine is another step in the evolution of Tom’s Block under Todd Stevens. The vision is always “less is more.” The fingerprint of the winemaker should be imperceptible, allowing the site to have a voice.

    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.

    Definitely drinkable but still precisely Pinot.

    Neudorf Tom's Block Pinot Noir 2015

    Neudorf Tom's Block Pinot Noir 2015 - "Probably the most complex bouquet from a Tom's Block Pinot - aromas of ripe red and dark red berry fruits laced with scents of soil, oak and spices; a dark rose and sweet fruit tea layer, a mid-sniff concentration that suggests a little mystery and charm. On the palate - smooth silky tannins with an edginess that only a natural fermentation can deliver, concentrated and flavourful with messages of dark berries, oak, oak spice and balance, acid level is pretty much spot on, lengthy finish. Drink now and through 2025. 95 Points."

    Neudorf Tom's Block Pinot Noir 2015 - "Medium-bodied pinot noir with dark cherry, plum, berry, spice and anise flavours. Quite a firmly-structured wine that will benefit from a little bottle age. Good food wine. 90 Points."

    Cameron Douglas MS

    Neudorf Tom's Block Pinot Noir 2015 - "Deepish red/purple, an excellent colour, and the bouquet is youthful, fresh and bold, bright and cherry-fruited, with flesh and richness, fruit concentration, good extract and persistence. Tannins are ample and very good. It seems un-manipulated. The power of fruit is the strength of the wine. 94 Points, 4.5 Stars."

    Huon Hooke

    Neudorf Tom's Block Pinot Noir 2015 - "This has a seductive nose with floral, tar and herb notes as well as sweet black cherry fruit. The palate has sweet dark fruits but also a brooding, more savoury character. It’s expressive and a bit grippy on the finish, balancing the sweet fruit with savoury notes in a really attractive way. 92/10."
     

    Jamie Goode

    Neudorf Tom's Block Pinot Noir 2015 - "Healthy mid crimson. Savoury yeast-extract (Marmite) notes on the nose. Vibrant bright fruit and lots of fun. Still quite marked acidity and fine tannins but very promising. Firm spine. Confident, rather dry grip on the palate. But pretty yummy overall, impressively long, and not ridiculously expensive. Good Value. 16.5 Points."

    Jancis Robinson MW

    Neudorf Tom's Block Pinot Noir 2015 - "This regional blend can offer fine value. The 2015 vintage (4.5*) was hand-harvested at three Moutere sites (including the Home Block), matured in French oak barriques (22 per cent new), and bottled without fining or filtration. Still unfolding, it is a deep ruby, mouthfilling red, savoury and smooth, with ripe plum, cherry and spice flavours, seasoned with nutty oak, and excellent depth and complexity."

    Michael Cooper

    Neudorf Tom's Block Pinot Noir 2015 - "A very impressive wine for the density and depth of ripe peach and pear fruits. The nose has terrific purity and clarity. The palate has an effortless, gliding feel to it, concentrated but so balanced it's seemingly weightless. Finishes tight and tidy. 92 Points." For JamesSuckling.com

    Nick Stock
    Neudorf Tom's Block Pinot Noir 2015 - "Vibrant core of dark-red cherry along with dark-red florals and subtle notes of fresh and dried herbs. Enlivened by fresh, lacy acidity and the mouthfeel possesses energy and vitality. A positively driven core and line, leading to a fine-textured, sweet-fruited, lingering finish. A deliciously rich Pinot Noir with dark fruits and herb complexities on a bright, lively, finely extracted palate." Raymond Chan
