Neudorf ‘Rosie’s Block’ Chardonnay 2016

18-Apr-2017
The Neudorf ‘Moutere’ label is a contender for the best Chardonnay made in this country, with its impressive track record stretching back to the mid-1980s. The lessons learnt in the adventurous winemaking over the decades with this wine have seen the most positive of the techniques incorporated in the growing of grapes and the making of the more affordable tier of the Neudorf Chardonnay. Once just called plainly the ‘Nelson’ Chardonnay, it now bears the name ‘Rosie’s Block’, alluding to the incorporation of fruit from a vineyard block named after founders’ Tim and Judy Finn’s daughter Rosie. As Rosie has grown and now become a sophisticated person, the wine has done likewise. Here, I review the 2016 ‘Rosie’s Block’ Chardonnay, from a challenging vintage that has produced elegant and approachable wines. www.neudorf.co.nz
