Drink it.In the glass it is an elegant, pale shimmer of shrimp pink with a hint of dusty apricot/onion skin. But don’t be fooled by the subtle colour. It has an impressive palate and lovely weight to take you through the glass.Alluring on the nose, orange peel with a whiff of intriguing clean marine notes. European in structure. It is charming but not innocent.Very cosmopolitan. It brings to mind French mid-century movies where someone is sitting at a café table with long Campari and soda waiting for the waiter to bring moules frites and a bowl of garlicky mayonnaise.Dangerously easy to drink a glass and beguiling enough to hold its own with your supper at dusk.The grapes for this wine grown on Moutere Clay Gravels. It’s totally dry but 20 % barrel ferment partnered with 100 % wild yeast ferment adds a perceptible fullness/richness to the palate. 100% Pinot Noir grapes.Drink it alone or partner it with shellfish or goats cheese. A glass will sit happily alongside simple pasta dishes or salads. It is a flexible performer at the table.
Neudorf Pinot Rosé 2018 - "Though delicate, the fruit is piquant, lending a dry, thirst-quenching mouthfeel. The fruit forms a very fine line with good acid drive, and the wine carries to a mouthwatering dry finish. This is a poised dry rosé with delicate strawberry and quince flavours on a refreshing palate, in the Provence style. 18+/20."Raymond Chan
