Neudorf Vineyards’ cellar door is open from 1.00pm on Anzac Day. We will bring out some library stock to taste (I am thinking Neudorf Moutere Pinots and Chardonnays). At the end of April we will close for the weekends until October and our weekday hours will be reduced (11 am until 4.00pm).
Winter in Nelson can be glorious – clear blue skies, crisp mornings and warm days.
Pinot Gris – getting the attention it deserves. When grown intelligently, with respect for the variety, it is memorable.
It is our favourite wine with a wedge of Neudorf Richmond Red sheep cheese from up the road. Fantastic with roast pork and all Asian inspired dishes.
“Wonderful reminder of how good Pinot Gris can be – heavy like dusk, rose-scented, damask.” Victoria Moore UK- Telegraph
“Neudorf Moutere Pinot Gris is more reminiscent of Alsace than Italy- light smokiness and masses of crisp fruit.” Jancis Robinson MW
“From one of New Zealand’s finest producers the Neudorf Moutere Pinot Gris is superb. It has all the hallmarks of quality, complex and textural with flavours of quince, honeycomb and wild grasses. It is gorgeous.” John Hawkesby March 2014
“Outstanding – Weighty and complex, with an almost Chardonnay-like power, it’s a rich, finely poised wine, already delicious but well worth cellaring. Five Stars” Michael Cooper
“Excellent, lush yet crisp.” Oz Clarke (UK)
“Shows an appealing spiciness mostly lacking in NZ Pinot Gris- clove, anise, pear, quince, mineral – delicious. Five Stars 93/100″ Bob Campbell MW
Complex and integrated the wine has great persistence and direction. In producing Pinot Gris of this calibre, both winemaker Todd and viticulturist Richard are quite clear about pursuing elegance and finesse, resisting the trend to over ripen. This Pinot Gris holds the line perfectly – powerful but not showy, fine but not austere. I wish we had more available. But the good news is the team have started picking Pinot Gris 2014.
