Neudorf Moutere Chardonnay 2012

neudorf moutere chardonnay

Neudorf are one of New Zealand’s most famous wineries. They’re based in the Nelson region, where the first vines of the modern era were planted on South Island, and of late they’ve had some hugely positive press, including Bob Campbell’s first 100 point score (Bob is probably the most famous Kiwi wine journalist).

I like their wines a good deal, and particularly the Chardonnays, which are just lovely. New Zealand Chardonnay is a relatively untold story, but it’s one that I’m following.

Neudorf Moutere Chardonnay 2012 Nelson, New Zealand
Powerful and spicy, and beginning to show its first signs of development, with a subtle buttery edge to the pear and white peach fruit. There’s a lively citrus core here and good acidity, and also some toasty richness. Really fine and expressive. 94/100
