Serious Kiwi Chardonnay: Neudorf Rosie's Block 2018

After yesterday’s New Zealand wine seminar in Edinburgh, I was curious to try this wine. It’s the Rosie’s Block Chardonnay from Neudorf, and it’s really good. Neudorf have a deserved reputation as being Chardonnay experts, and regularly deliver compelling wines with potential for development.

Neudorf Rosie’s Block Chardonnay 2018 Nelson, New Zealand
13% alcohol. Moutere clay gravel soils, wild ferment in 15% new oak. A taut, intense, focused expression of Chardonnay with a mineral core and tight lemon fruit, together with subtle creamy hints, a twist of hazelnut and subtle pineapple exoticism. There’s great energy to this wine, which is tightly furled with layers of flavour that emerge in the glass and mouth. A serious, focused effort of real appeal. 94/100 (NZ retail $33)
