Winery notes (2016 Vintage)
"Neudorf Moutere Chardonnay has an admirable history and each year we are impressed by its consistency. Despite wild variation in climate and vintage idiosyncrasies the wine rises above all to deliver controlled and aristocratic allure.
 
This commanding chardonnay truly reflects our Moutere terroir, despite atypical growing season. The driest spring on record was followed by a moist summer with unusually warm nights, and a moderate but relatively dry harvest period.
 
The wine will be remembered as one of elegance, rather lithe in stature, and approachable. Rich and powerful with wet slate notes and a hint of grapefruit pith. Subtle at the start, it surges across the palate to a tapered, mineral, salivatory finish."
5 Stars & 97/100 Bob Campbell MW, The Real Review (2016 Vintage)
"Rich, weighty chardonnay with intense toast, mineral, oyster shell, white peach, nectarine, gingernut biscuit and spicy French oak flavours. A less focused, broader style than usual, with good complexity and obvious power."
97/100 Cameron Douglas MS (2016 Vintage)
"Complex bouquet, enticing and beguiling aromas of ripe orchard fruits – white peach, pear and pear skin, red apple then a fine mix of lees, sweet spicy oak and light sulphide attack. On the palate – delicious, youthful, tense, textured and packed with subtly and intrigue. Fruit flavours reflect the nose - with an added citrus layer - as do the spices of oak and lees textures. Complex and lengthy finish. A stunning example."
5 Stars & 19.0/20 Raymond Chan, September 2017 (2016 Vintage)
"Bright straw-yellow colour with light golden hues, paler on the rim. The nose is elegant in proportion with a tightly bound core showing complex layers of white and yellow stonefruits, subtle mealy notes, creamy and nutty barrel-ferment elements with some oak toast and smoke. The nose ha freshness allied to intensity, revealing mineral suggestions that lend finesse. Medium-full bodied, the palate is rich and well-concentrated with a complex layering of white and yellow stonefruits with citrus fruit and mealy detail, along with nutty lees and oak. Subtle flint and mineral nuances add interest. The palate has vibrancy and vitality, with underlying power, along with fresh, lacy acidity underlining the fruit. The concentrated core has good linearity and fine textures, and the wine carries to a long and sustained finish of stonefruits and nuts. This is a well-concentrated, rich, complex layered Chardonnay with stonefruit, mealy and nutty notes on a fresh, vibrant palate. Match with grilled and roasted seafood, poultry and pork over the next 5+ years. Mendoza clone fruit from the Neudorf ‘Home’ and ‘Rosie’s’ blocks, Upper Moutere, WBP and fully indigenous yeast barrel-fermented with high solids to 13.5% alc., the wine aged 12 months on lees in 11% new French oak, with batonnage and 100% MLF, then given a further 4 months on lees in tank. Certified BioGro organic. 439 cases made."
94/100 Jamie Goode (2016 Vintage)
"Finely spiced with keen citrus fruit and good acidity, this is tightwound and complex, showing precise flavours of pear, lemons and a bit of grapefruit pith. There’s a bit of warm spiciness from the oak, but it’s very well integrated. With high acidity and restrained fruit ripeness, this has all the ingredients needed for happy development in bottle over the next 10 years. Great concentration and intensity, but no heaviness. Currently very tight and backward, as you’d expect."
