This is the latest release from Nelson winery Neudorf, and it’s a new name for an old wine. Rosie’s Block is named after Judy and Tim Finn’s daughter Rosie, and used to be known simply as Neudorf Chardonnay. They also make a more expensive Moutere Chardonnay.

The wine comes from a block overlooking the home vineyard with a north-facing aspect and clay/gravel soils. The vines are dry grown, mature and the vineyard is managed organically (it’s in conversion). There’s also a bit of fruit from other Moutere hill sites in here. I really like this wine – it’s precise and detailed and should age beautifully.

Neudorf Rosie’s Block Chardonnay 2015 Nelson, New Zealand
Very lean and citrussy. Pure and quite mineral with a fine spiciness. It’s still primary with very direct lemony flavours and keen but well integrated acidity. Amazing finesse: so taut with nascent complexity. Drinking well now but will get better with a few years in bottle. 94/100

Here’s a short video of me tasting the wine:
