Winery notes (2016 Vintage)
"​Named after Tim and Judy’s daughter Rosie. Quietly confident entry with nuances of nectarine and dried apricot supporting a necklace of thyme, lime leaf and wild herbs. Suave handling of oak is elegant and restrained. On the palate the wine is full, lively and energetic with a nervy finish leaving a trail of citrus leaf and nicely integrated acid. The wine is precise and polished exhibiting classic “Neudorf” notes."
David Williams, The Guardian UK
“Chardonnay, too, reaches Burgundian levels of pristine complexity in the hands of producers such as Neudorf.”
Joelle Thomson (2016 Vintage)
"Winemaker Tim and his partner in wine and life, Judy, named this full bodied, dry, beautifully fresh and zesty Chardonnay after their daughter, Rosie. Its freshness comes from the noticeably high acidity (for Chardonnay) that this South Island wine region provides with its strong zesty citrus flavours, which are balanced by creamy rounded mouthfeel and a long finish. The grapes in this wine were grown on the Moutere hillside where the soils are clay based."
5 Stars & 18.5+/20 Raymond Chan, April 2017 (2016 Vintage)
"​Even straw-yellow colour with some depth and pale golden hues on the rim. This has a gently full and voluminous nose with harmoniously interwoven aromas of white and yellow stonefruits, creamy barrel-ferment and nutty oak notes, and subtle flinty complexities and oxidative suggestions that unfold in detail and layers. Medium-full bodied, the palate has a rich and deep heart, packed with layered flavours of yellow stonefruits entwined with nutty and creamy oak, and subtle notes of flint and minerals, with oxidative hints, all melded with harmony. The palate has some alcohol power and drive, and the wine flows smoothly along a fine-textured line, enlivened by balanced, refreshing acidity. The finish is long and sustained, showing stonefruits and nuts. This is a harmoniously rich and layered Chardonnay with complex stonefruit, nutty and creamy oak and flinty minerals on a positive, fine-flowing palate. Match with seafood, poultry and pork over the next 4 years. Clones Mendoza, 15, 95 8021and 548 Chardonnay from ‘Rosie’s Block, the ‘Moutere Home Block’ and other small Moutere lots, WBP, and indigenous yeast barrel-fermented with high solids to 13.5% alc., the wine aged 10 months in 15% new French oak on lees with batonnage and full MLF."
