Neudorf Tom’s Block Pinot Noir 2017 Nelson, New Zealand
13.5% alcohol. Moutere clay/gravel soils. Wild ferment and spring malolactic, matured in barrels (20% new oak). 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. 93/100
