Neudorf Riesling Moutere 2010

External Review by JJ Buckley Fine Wines:

Neudorf seems to do almost everything well, and the winery's efforts with Riesling off the Moutere clays are no exception. It's made in a light- to medium-bodied style, off dry, with crisp notes of lime, green apple and wet stone that linger on the m... Wine Enthusiast.

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

The 2010 Moutere Riesling is intensely scented of lime cordial mandarin peel and passion fruit with hints of jasmine peach blossoms and clover honey. The palate offers a medium-sweet light bodied style with well-balanced very crisp acid and concentrated citrus and tropical flavors finishing very long. Approachable now it should be drinking at its finest from 2013 to 2018+. Robert Parkers Wine Advocate.

Neudorf seems to do almost everything well and the winery s efforts with Riesling off the Moutere clays are no exception. It s made in a light- to medium-bodied style off dry with crisp notes of lime green apple and wet stone that linger on the mouthwatering finish. Wine Enthusiast.
