Neudorf Rosies Block Chardonnay 2017

100% Chardonnay from Neudorf Rosie's Block and Home Block in the Upper Moutere, with small lots from the Moutere, located in the Nelson region.

Fruit was whole bunch pressed with minimal settling. Fermentation with wild yeast in 15% new French oak barrel, medium toast. Maturation for 10 months on full lees with monthly battonage. Malolactic fermentation with no fining and coarse filtration before bottling.

Winemaker's Comments

Generous mouthfeel with white peach, underscored by an intriguing savoury note, and a touch of citrus with notes of dill. The wine is rich but controlled; the word "sleek" springs to mind. A vein of acidity keeps the full-textured palate under control and offers a refreshing, cleansing finish with a satisfying trail of flavour.

    "Very appetising with good breadth of fruit and no excess of acidity. Although it was bottled only two months earlier, it's already open and appealing. Great tension but with a solid core of fresh fruit."
