It was good to have a line up of Neudorf Chardonnay to pursue the current thinking behind the Chardonnay renaissance. I know many of us murmur that Chardonnay never went away but we are elated to witness the upsurge in interest.
The FMV team and the wineries (Neudorf, Dog Point, Isabel , Alana and The Elder Pinot) gathered at Ognisko – an elegant Polish Restaurant in South Kensington. Pierogi and Karkówka, Chlodnik – Chilled Beetroot, Radish and Yoghurt Soup with the deliciously inevitable caviar and smoked salmon. The team behind the famous Baltic run the restaurant.
Daughter Rosie went straight to London after graduation and immediately went to the Oval for the Three Wine Men event. She caught up with Tim Atkin, Oz Clarke and Olly Smith and shows every sign of becoming a Neudorf ambassador.
Winter has settled on Neudorf, the pruners are braving winter frosts, the wine team are relaxing as wines move through ferment. I love the cold weather and enjoy being in a warm office knowing there is soup on the stove and firewood stacked in the shed.
It’s Pinot time.
