“Neudorf makes fabulous Pinot Gris”


Winery notes (2016 Vintage)
“Overall the wine demonstrates how Pinot Gris achieves elegance when it is correctly cropped and well handled in the winery. It is carefully sculptured to ensure the natural richness of the grapes retains elegance. Poised, just the right amount of weight and the flow across the palate leaves the right balance of phenolics. The fruit for this wine from the Moutere clay gravels – it continues to produce grapes and wine of complexity and depth.

As with its darker skinned cousin Pinot Noir, to give of its best Pinot Gris needs to be cropped at low rates, and preferably in a cool climate. Only then will it reveal its unique characters – a surprisingly tactile mouthfeel (glycerol like) and some intriguing flavours, ranging through the pear, nashi, quince spectrum, with a balance of phenolics rather than assertive acidity.”


4 1/2 Stars Michael Cooper (2016 Vintage)
“The youthful 2016 vintage was hand-picked from mature vines in the Home Vineyard and fermented with indigenous yeasts in tanks (83 per cent) and old French oak puncheons (17 per cent). An off-dry style (5.5 grams/litre of residual sugar), it is a pale lemon/green, full-bodied wine, vibrantly fruity, with pear, citrus-fruit and peach flavours, showing excellent delicacy, vigour and depth. A finely poised wine, it should break into full stride mid-2018+.”


94/100 Bob Campbell MW, February 2017 (2016 Vintage)
“Aromatic pinot gris with tree fruit, pear, peach and nectarine plus an appealing nutty and brioche character from lees contact. Dry, full-flavoured wine with a peppery texture and attractive spicy finish. The wine has a good balance of subtle sweetness with gentle acidity and fine tannins. Drink 2016 to 2021.”


93/100 Cameron Douglas MS, March 2017 (2016 Vintage)
“An obvious and immediately engaging aroma package of Gris with a light white spice and wild ferment note of wild honey which leads to suggestions of pears and a little quince. On the palate – juicy, fresh, silky texture, abundant core of fruit; spice layer returns, plenty of acidity and a light citrus note, lengthy and very satisfying finish. Great balance and quite weighty with decent length.”
