Now's your chance to get hold of some of Neudorf Rosie's Block Chardonnay 2017 as this wine always sells through quickly. We've just received stocks and do not expect them to be around for long, such is the demand for this wine. Already the 2017 has scored a whopping 19/20 from Raymond Chan and a very big thumbs up from Dean here who whisked a bottle home almost before it touched the shelves! Neudorf have to be considered 'Chardonnay Royalty' here in NZ and David Williams wrote in The Guardian (UK) “Chardonnay, too, reaches Burgundian levels of pristine complexity in the hands of producers such as Neudorf.” A stunning wine from one of our best producers.
Winery notes (2017 Vintage)
"Named after Tim and Judy’s daughter Rosie. Her block sits on the hill overlooking the home block. Winemaking is very similar to Moutere – 100% malolactic fermentation and only about 15 % new oak.

2017 vintage produced a green/gold wine with generous mouthfeel… white peach underscored by an intriguing savoury note. A touch of citrus and notes of dill. The wine is rich but controlled. The word sleek springs to mind. A girdle of acidity keeps the full, textured, palate under control and offers a refreshing, cleansing finish. This persistent finish which leaves a satisfying trail of flavour. Drink it slightly cool, not cold and enjoy alongside chicken, grilled hoki and as a counterpoint to roast pork crackling.

As a wine we feel this vintage is showing splendidly considering its youth. It is drinking well now and will continue to evolve as it ages. Suave handling of oak is elegant and restrained. A juicy wine inviting a second glance. 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.”
5 Stars & 19.0-/20 Raymond Chan, April 2018 (2017 Vintage)
"​Bright yellow colour with light green-gold hues and some depth, a little lighter on the edge. The nose is soft and elegantly packed with aromas of yellow stonefruits in a subtle amalgam with complexing mealy notes and delicate, creamy barrel-ferment and nutty oak entwined with hints of flinty lees and mineral suggestions. This has layers of detail and interest. Medium-full bodied, the palate has elegantly concentrated, gently rich and succulent flavours of stonefruits, citrus fruits and tropical fruits, melded with mealy elements and layered with creamy and nutty oak. The fruit richness and depth is balanced by fresh, lacy acidity, and the wine forms a fine core with drive and linearity. The wine carries to a long finish with flint and mineral detail. This is an elegantly concentrated, complex layered and detailed Chardonnay with subtly rich fruit on a fresh palate. Match with seafood, poultry and pork over the next 4+ years. Clones Mendoza, 15, 95, 8021 and 548, from ‘Rosie’s Block’, the ‘Home Block’ and small amounts from other Moutere sites, WBP and fully indigenous yeast barrel-fermented with high solids to 13.5% alc., the wine aged 10 months on lees in 15% new French oak with batonnage and 100% MLF."
17/20 Jancis Robinson MW (2017 Vintage)
"Very appetising with good breadth of fruit and no excess of acidity. Although it was bottled only two months earlier, it's already open and appealing. Great tension but with a solid core of fresh fruit."
