Overview

As our national palate for Sauvignon Blanc evolves it is worth revisiting if you have tired of the traditional "acid Queen, nettle and gooseberry blockbusters." Many of today's more adventurous winemakers (and wine drinkers) are exploring new roads and less obvious styles. The results may titillate your interest once again. Drink with anticipation of rediscovering a long lost love. Add Kai Moana or a roast cauliflower salad.

Winery Tasting Notes

Aroma

The acidity is well contained and supported by a bowl of semi-tropical fruits (cherimoya, banana passionfruit). It is quite delicious, imbued by a sense of completeness and fulfilment.

Palate

The first glass leaves the palate with refreshing tingle and a hint of pineapple.

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

Neudorf Vineyards is regarded as one of New Zealand's finest boutique wineries. Exporting to 16 countries, their wine is listed at some the world's greatest restaurants.

Neudorf's home plantings spill down a gentle north-facing slope overlooking a side branch of the Moutere Valley at the top of New Zealand's South Island. They also grow grapes on the stony alluvial area between the Waimea and Wai-iti rivers at Brightwater, on the Waimea plains south of Nelson.

Vineyard management is driven by the winemaker's desire for ripe flavours and concentrated fruit. A combination of high plant density (up to 5000 vines/hectare) and low production (down to one kilo per vine for Pinot Noir) helps achieve the quality of fruit to create long-lived, intense but elegant wines. New clonal material is consistently being evaluated.
