Neudorf Vintage 2016 is over.

Winter – time to pour a glass of Pinot, re-acquaint ourselves with the sticky, crispy joy of duck fat roasted parsnips and start on the stack of books beside the bed. You can forget about weeds in the garden for couple of months and revel in the continuing strangeness that is the US election.

Neudorf Vintage 2016 was not our easiest – Todd and Mike turned the winery lab into a “war room” where the generals discussed the best way to outflank the weather. They won by hard work and meticulous picking decisions. Todd  threw the rule-book out the window and picked on instinct. The young wines are particularly inviting, lower alcohol and some generous mouthfeel marking the early tastings. See their vintage report in the news column.

 

Neudorf Rosie’s Block Chardonnay 2015

Previously this wine was simply Neudorf Chardonnay – a sister wine to the iconic Neudorf Moutere Chardonnay. We think the new name, like our daughter, is admirable.

The mature vines on Rosie’s  Block are dry farmed, under organic conversion on north facing Moutere clay-gravel slopes. Parcels from other Moutere hill sites are included in the wine which displays the classic Neudorf stamp of crystalline mineral acidity, pure directional flow and ageability.

It is all about structure at Neudorf, we play down winemaker “noise” in favour of letting the site and the variety speak.”

Jamie Goode (The Wine Anorak) has a similar view here.

 

Neudorf Moutere Pinot Noir 2013

Our last cases of this venerable vintage. Described by Nick Stock on JamesSuckling.com as ” consistently one of the most distinctive, complex Pinots made in NZ ”

The wine is into its stride now and as with all Neudorf Pinots – has aged elegantly showing vibrancy and richness. Totally recommended for winter venison, lamb and mushroom dishes.

 

Our cellar door is  open every day from 11 am until 4.00 pm. Please note we close weekends after Queen’s Birthday Weekend.

When ordering wines please feel free to ring us if the website is proving a challenge (0064 3 5432643)

Neudorf Moutere Pinot Noir – a New Zealand classic. Dry farmed, organically grown, first vines planted in 1978. The roots are down 3-4 metres- exploring virgin soils and supporting worms. The resulting wines age beautifully and exhibit a luxurious savouriness. “One…
