Rosie's Block Chardonnay 2018
93 points, “Stylish Chardonnay… A weighty wine with a pleasingly silken texture.” – Bob Campbell MW
94 points, “They make very good Chardonnay over at Neudorf. Reliably good… It’s a great thing to drink.” – Gary Walsh, The Wine Front
94 points, “There’s great energy to this wine… A serious, focused effort of real appeal.” – Dr Jamie Goode, Wine Anorak
As the critic scores and Jancis Robinson’s conclusion that this is “very well done” suggest, Rosie’s Block Chardonnay from Neudorf is a winner. Organic, fermented with wild yeasts, matured on the lees in oak for ten months and bottled without fining – making it vegan friendly. It’s brimming with ripe peaches, nectarines, mangos, grapefruits, cashews, toasted hazelnuts, spiced hot cross buns, biscuits, cream and something that reminds us of hopping between rockpools on the beach. We’d recommend pairing it with roasted dishes prepared with lemon and olive oil, creamy pasta and coconut, cashew or almond-based curries.
Located in the Nelson region of New Zealand’s South Island and founded in 1978 by Tim and Judy Finn, Neudorf has established a reputation for crafting award-winning wines that are restrained, structured and quite European in style. Their dry-farmed vines in the Moutere Hills are all either certified organic or currently in conversion (a three year process), they recycle waste, use lightweight bottles and recycled cardboard packaging, donate to a children’s dialysis charity and even have an electric car charger at the cellar door to try and promote a greener outlook among their customers. Great wine and genuinely nice people; does life get any better than that?
