Neudorf Sauvignon Blanc Nelson 2010
Complex, ripe and fragrant. A sophisticated smooth Sauvignon showing restraint and elegance. Like Neudorf’s Moutere Chardonnay this wine shows the house style of power and intensity but is neither brash nor overt. On the nose guava, elderflower and hints of mimosa and mango. The wine is dry but smooth and complete. Cropping rates were low and a portion of the fruit was handpicked and whole bunch pressed. This has reduced the phenolic presence, enhancing finesse and leaving a creamy mouthfeel and a very long finish. Neudorf Sauvignon’s are not early onto the market and there is no push to drink them young. The intention is for a food friendly wine to drink this summer and into 2012.
External Reviews for Neudorf Sauvignon Blanc Nelson
Soft, dry Sauvignon Blanc with appealing purity. Gentle mineral salt, lemon grass, Gala apple and a suggestion of floral and nut flavours. Elegant, complex wine with character and individuality. Bob Campbell, MW. A Sauvignon Blanc wine from Nelson in New Zealand. 2010 Neudorf Sauvignon Blanc 750ml
The 2010 Sauvignon Blanc presents intense notes of fresh lemon juice, grapefruit peel and green apple slices with underlying grass and green bean hints. Medium to full bodied, it has a pleasant silkiness to the texture with very good flavor concentra... Robert Parkers Wine Advocate. A Sauvignon Blanc wine from Nelson in New Zealand. 2010 Neudorf Sauvignon Blanc 750ml
Pale yellow. White pepper, spices and dusty minerality on the nose. Then surprisingly sweet and pliant on the palate, with strong, persistent flavors of citrus and white stone fruits. Stephen Tanzers IWC. A Sauvignon Blanc wine from Nelson in New Zealand. 2010 Neudorf Sauvignon Blanc 750ml
