Neudorf Moutere Chardonnay 2015

100% Chardonnay from the Neudorf Home Block, Upper Moutere and Neudorf Rosie's Block.vineyards in the Moutere winegrowing region near Nelson.

Fruit was 100% whole bunch pressed with minimal settling. Fermentation with wild yeast in 12% new French oak barrels, medium toast. The wine spent 12 months on full lees with monthly battonage until completion of malolactic fermentation, followed by 4 months on fine lees in stainless steel tank.

Winemaker's Comments

Classic stature with the serenity and confidence we have come to expect from Moutere Chardonnay. This "house style" delivers the same tautness and intensity year after year: rich but not blowsy; powerful but not bullish. Self-assured, cohesive, aristocratic and harmonious. Be gently sucked into a vortex of ripeness, restrained oak, precision and poise.
