Neudorf Chardonnay Moutere 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

Fine white gold in colour. On the palate rich and poised with lovely balance. Very creamy smooth and elegant.The weight is not overt or punchy but gently enveloping and the wine finishes with citrus notes and a biscuit crumbs or perhaps praline.The gardeners among you will know the smell of magnolias or michelias at night – tropical, musky and sweet. Subtle and very memorable. After the wine has flowed over the palate the length becomes apparent and the attenuated finish leaves a delicious taste memory.

1978 and the New Zealand fine wine industry was almost non existent. We (Tim and I) pioneers-bigwere fresh from the “back to the land” movement of the late sixties. We wanted to make beautiful wine. We figured Tim’s masters in Animal Behaviour along with my unimpressive journalism career would be beneficial. Wrong. However we did have youth (temporary), self belief (unwarranted) and friends. At one stage we had four mortgages and three jobs each. Because there was so little known about basic viticulture in New Zealand we planted many varieties to see which ones were best suited to our soils. Merlot came and went as did Cabernet Sauvignon, Chenin Blanc and the dreaded Muller Thurgau. We were a bit hasty in rejecting Gewürztraminer and may look at that again. But we did it. We, and a whole heap of people – neighbours, family, friends and some fantastic staff. Each left a mark and many have gone onto work in bigger wineries or plant their own vineyard. Today 31 years later and we never feel we have it all sorted. We built our winery in 1980 with the intermittent help of a young chippie from down the road, using macrocarpa milled on site. Adapted from the orginal stables (circa 1850), it has been described by one writer as “an elegant shed” and houses the wine bar, office and white winery. At the back is a vineyard garden featuring an enormous Acer Negundo – perfect for climbing. Read less

Stunning wine with Neudorf's trademark intensity and finesse. Layers of flavour with grapefruit/citrus, toasted nut, classy oak and strong chalk/mineral. The wine has a backbone of taut acidity that helps drive the flavours to an exceedingly lengthy ... Bob Campbell, MW.
