    Neudorf Sauvignon Blanc is a unique take on New Zealand’s most planted variety.

    Winemaker Todd Stevens pursues complex aromatics while remaining true to varietal characteristics. As with the rest of the Neudorf portfolio textural interest is a major component. In the winery we use 100% wild ferment, and this along with 40% barrel fermentation moderates the high tone nature of the variety

    One the nose green papaya with some fresh ripe green tropicals and a hidden steely note. The feel across the palate is vibrant, directional, & textural. This Sauvignon exudes class, poise and restraint. Refreshing and distinctive, it is self-assured and utterly moreish.

    Our Sauvignon is grown on the alluvial gravels down on the plains, from Marama Vineyard, owned by Brett and Anna Woodwiss rather than the clay gravels of the Moutere Hills, home to our Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Riesling, Pinot Gris and Albariño.

    As our national palate for Sauvignon Blanc evolves it is worth revisiting if you have tired of the traditional “acid Queen, nettle and gooseberry blockbusters”. Many of today’s more adventurous winemakers (and wine drinkers) are exploring new roads and less obvious styles. The results may titillate your interest once again.

    Drink with anticipation of rediscovering a long lost love.

     

    Neudorf Sauvignon Blanc 2018

    Neudorf Sauvignon Blanc 2018 - "Intense but not formulaic nose with notes of herbs and dried leaves. Crystal-clear fruit with very marked acidity and no obvious sweetness. The acidity is so marked, I would want to nibble something while drinking this. Superior. 16 Points."

    Neudorf Sauvignon Blanc 2018 - "This has a very fresh and juicy feel with vibrant lemon and lime flavours and a succulent, fresh and fleshy array of peaches, lemons and nectarines. Texturally smooth. 92 Points."

    Nick Stock for James Suckling

    Neudorf Sauvignon Blanc 2018 - "Fresh, crisp and tangy sauvignon blanc with bright grapefruit, guava, salty, mineral and ginger flavours. the wine has appealing purity, a pleasing texture and impressive concentration. 94 Points, 4.5 Stars."

    Bob Campbell MW

    Neudorf Sauvignon Blanc 2018 - "Complex, fruity, varietal and a little wild with white flowers, mayer lemon, grapefruit, red apple, cape gooseberry and a little passion fruit. Dry, fleshy and fruity on the palate with a hint of barrel ferment adding a creaminess to the core of fruit. Flavours of fruits and spice reflect the nose, soft herbs layer, abundant acidity, fine almost grainy texture, lengthy finish. Delicious! Drink now and through 2024+. This wine will age beyond 2024 if stored well. 94 Points."
