Tiritiri Sauvignon Blanc 2019
94 points, “Fresh, crisp and tangy Sauvignon Blanc with bright grapefruit, guava, salty, mineral and ginger flavours. The wine has appealing purity, a pleasing texture and impressive concentration.” – Bob Campbell MW
As Jancis Robinson says, this is “a cut above average” New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc. Tiritiri is the name given to the wines made by Neudorf using grapes from friends. This one is made in collaboration with Brett and Anna Woodwiss down in the Waimea Plains. Single vineyard, fermented with wild yeasts, 20% barrel fermented and bottled without fining – making it vegan friendly. Gloriously pure with juicy tropical fruit, greengage, gooseberry, lime, heady blossom, sea breeze and a moreishly full texture. We’d recommend pairing it with sunshine, vibrant dishes, crunchy salads and good company.
Based 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?
