Moutere Pinot Gris 2018
95 points, “Concentrated pear, apple, ginger and subtle honeysuckle flavours… A seamless wine with a silken texture and pleasingly dry finish. Delicious wine.” – Bob Campbell MW
Plump, rich and exceedingly tasty. Although revered in Alsace, Pinot Gris from New Zealand is all too often overlooked. One taste of Neudorf’s Moutere Pinot Gris will put an end to that. Organic, fermented with wild yeasts, aged on the lees and bottled without fining – making it vegan friendly. There are whispers of ginger beer, star anise, white peach, pear, baked apple, cashew, cream and something that reminds us of donning a new Merino wool jumper. We’d recommend pairing it with creamy sausage pasta, soft cheese, mild curries or jerk spiced tofu with Jamaican rice and peas. Kiwi wine expert Bob Campbell ranked this the third best Pinot Gris of the vintage in New Zealand and it’s not hard to see why.
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?
