Neudorf 2018 Pinot Rosé, 2017 Moutere Chardonnay and 2016 Moutere Pinot Noir

22-Sep-2018

In my early days in the wine trade, I was told to look at a winery’s cheapest wines. If they were good, then the chances were that their best wines would be outstanding. An icon wine producer will make every wine to the highest standards possible. If you look at my list of ‘Winery of the Year’ recipients (click here to access), all of the producers there make outstanding wines at all levels. Neudorf Vineyards was my 2012 ‘Winery of the Year’, and I can categorically state that all of the wines, and not just the top-of-the-line ‘Moutere’ bottlings from them have been impeccable. Sure the ‘Moutere’ wines have greater richness, depth, complexity or style, but the other wines go as far as they can when taking aspiration into account. So, experience has proven that I am rarely, or should I say never disappointed by a Neudorf wine. Here, I review the 2018 Pinot Rosé, 2017 Moutere Chardonnay and 2016 Moutere Pinot Noir. The 2018 growing season was one of extreme, resulting in graceful wines, the 2017 growing season was cool, giving elegant wines, and 2016 was atypical, giving wines that are more approachable. And of course, the Neudorf wines reflect their vintages with great clarity. www.neudorf.co.nz
