100% Chardonnay from the Neudorf Home Block and Neudorf Hill Block vineyards in the Upper Moutere winegrowing region near Nelson.
Fruit was hand-picked and fermented in 25% new French oak. 100% malolactic ferment on gross lees was followed by 4 months on fine lees.
An enthralling nose of white magnolias, oat biscuits, raw cashew nuts and a final flick of matchstick flintiness. This complex compote draws you into a palate with textural interest and a reminder of the wine’s pedigree. Discreet but definite structure flows through evenly to a superbly attenuated finish, with a final flourish of Meyer lemon squeeze. A wine to cellar with confidence. The continued reputation of this wine is in no small part based on the wine’s ability to stay precise and lively for many years after release.
