2021 Neudorf 'Rosie's Block' Moutere Chardonnay
Nelson, New Zealand
Named after Tim and Judy’s daughter Rosie, the block sits on a slightly higher elevation to the Home Block just 1km away.
"Rosie’s Blocks seem to have some serious mojo. Excellent wines come from this place, with gentle winemaking alongside. Or considered but gentle. Anyways, Neudorf really shows form with chardonnay and should be on radars for the cognoscenti. Flavourtown, but judged well. Deep chardonnay flavours, touches of oak and lees savouriness in the mix, a lively, fino-like saline minerally lick and gently palate staining characters more generally. It’s fragrant, shows concentration but freshness, beautifully balanced and superb, invigorating finish. Classic, done so righteously. Smokin’ wine." 95 Points. Mike Bennie, The Wine Front
"An updated classic style with all the things you love about Chardonnay but given a modern silhouette. One part decadent, one part terroir, just a hint of flint, just enough oak to lend sweetness. Definitely not your usual squeaky clean Chardonnay and all the better for its edginess. I like it and I keep coming back to it. It tastes grown up in a nutty, zingy and flinty modern Meursault kind of way.” Stephen Wong MW
