Winery notes (2016 Vintage)
"While the “cool tropical” signature of Neudorf Sauvignon Blanc is unmistakable, our descriptors (stately, generous, hints of fresh brioche) are not your classic New Zealand Sauvignon indicators.It’s a clue to the surprising vintage of early ripeness but lower potential alcohols. The acidity is well contained and supported by a bowl of semi-tropical fruits (cherimoya, banana passionfruit ). It is quite delicious, imbued by a sense of completeness and fulfilment. The first glass leaves the palate with a refreshing tingle and a hint of pineapple.

Our Sauvignon is grown on the alluvial gravels down on the plains, rather than the clay gravels of the Moutere Hills,home to our Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Riesling, Pinot Gris and Albariño. In the winery we use a significant percentage of wild ferment, and this along with 20% barrel fermentation allows us to moderate the high tone nature of the variety. Instead we are searching for a complex aromatic while still remaining varietal and providing enough textural interest to allow the wine to be versatile with food."
91/100 Cameron Douglas MS (2016 Vintage)
"Ripe, fresh, fragrant and vibrantly fruity with aromas and flavours of quince and grapefruit, white peach and apple; plenty of mineral stony suggestions underpin the high toned acidity and lengthy finish. A lovely example."
4 Stars & 18.0-/20 Raymond Chan, October 2016 (2016 Vintage) ​
"Bright light straw-yellow colour with slight green hues, pale on the rim. The nose is fresh with tightly bound aromas of gooseberry and green stonefruits melded with piquant fresh herbs, cut grass and minerals, forming a firm and intense core. Dry to taste and medium-bodied, the palate possesses fresh, lively and succulent flavours of gooseberries and green stonefruits melded with herbs and minerals. This has a good core with depth. The mouthfeel is bright, lively and poised with refreshing, lacy acid tension. The wine flows along a very fine-textured phenolic line, carrying to a thirst-quenching, lingering finish of gooseberries and green stonefruits. This is a tightly concentrated and firm, thirst-quenching Sauvignon Blanc with juicy fruit gooseberry, green stonefruit and herb flavours. and a fine-textured line. Math with salads and vegetables, and Mediterranean fare over the next 2+ years. Fruit from the ‘Balquidder’ vineyard, Waimea Plains, 80% fermented in stainless-steel and 20% in seasoned oak, 65% by indigenous yeasts to 13.0% alc. and dryness, the wine aged on gross lees."
