2018 Moutere Chardonnay, Neudorf Vineyards, Nelson, New Zealand
Regular price £54.95
“Consistently among New Zealand’s best Chardonnays” Tim Atkin MW.
Tim and Judy Finn established Neudorf in 1978. They planted a mix of grape varieties, including Chardonnay which the estate is now revered for.
The Neudorf Moutere style is elegant and never too overt with everything in balance, including the moreish salty tang, reminiscent of sun-dried oyster shells. It’s always surprisingly long with a long palate. The oak over the years has been increasingly restrained with only 10% new barrels and the oak is consequently beautifully absorbed into the wine.
