Winery notes (2015 Vintage)
"Tom McDonald was a passionate winemaker and one of the earliest pioneers of quality winemaking in New Zealand. Produced only in outstanding vintages, TOM wines are of the most exceptional character and quality. Wearing the TOM label is our tribute to one of New Zealand's great winemaking legends.

Crammed full of rich, dark berryfruit the nose is lifted by beautifully perfumed floral aromas, warm exotic spices with subtle complexities of roasted coffee bean and smoky charcuterie. The palate is full bodied and velvety, with lovely line of gentle acidity delivering balance and length.

Fruit sourced from our Redstone Vineyard on the Bridge Pa Triangle (82.5%) and Gimblett Vineyard (17.5%). Selective harvesting was employed to target only the lowest vigour soils, down to part rows where required.  The fruit was then destemmed, lightly crushed, and fermented warm in a shallow profile, 70 year old concrete fermenters and an old French oak cuve. The caps were regularly broken and wetted to ensure a steady, gentle extraction. The resultant wine was filled to a selection of the finest French oak barrels (42% new) for 22 months subsequent maturation. The final wine has been very lightly egg white fined to soften the palate, and then bottled unfiltered."


5 Stars & 96/100 Bob Campbell MW, The Real Review, June 2019 (2015 Vintage)
"From grapes grown in the Bridge Pa Triangle. Superbly elegant and fragrant syrah with violet, cranberry, plum and a suggestion of mocha among the more prominent flavours. An elegant wine with a silken and ethereal texture. Should develop well but surprisingly approachable now. Drink 2019 – 2025+."


5 Stars Michael Cooper (2015 Vintage)
"Syrah is the latest addition to Church Road's elite Tom range. Released in September 2019, the third, 2015 vintage was mostly (82.5 per cent) estate-grown in the Redstone Vineyard, in the Bridge Pa Triangle of Hawke's Bay; 17.5 per cent was grown in the Gimblett Gravels. Matured for 22 months in French oak barrels (42 per cent new), it has deep, bright, purple-flushed colour and a highly fragrant, floral bouquet. A very elegant, supple, youthful and harmonious red, it is densely packed, with concentrated plum, spice and black pepper flavours, a hint of liquorice, and a long, refined finish. Already dangerously drinkable, it's well worth cellaring to at least 2022."


95.5/100 Cameron Douglas MS, June 2019 (2015 Vintage)
"Crafted using concrete fermenters and an old Cuve, 33 days on skins, 42% New French Oak and 22 Months Barrel ageing. A complex and very appealing bouquet of Syrah with aromas of violets and red flowers, dark berries, an abundance oak wood aromas and pepper. Complex on the palate with mealy tannins, loads of acidity, flavours of dark berries, clove and a little chocolate. A youthful wine still with tension and concentration. The tannins become a little finer as the wine opens up glass (Zalto perfect for this wine). Lengthy finish, a wine that will age well through 2025. Store properly and this wine will reward."
