Description

Handpicked from the oldest vines on their Home Block, this Neudorf Moutere Chardonnay has a complexity of bouquet that's hard to put into words. You just want to peruse it all day, but when you do give in and take a sip, you are confronted with a wine of both incredible beauty and unfathomable depth. A full malolactic conversion contributes only fatness and weight rather than buttery characters, the acidity remaining a real feature driving a long, long finish. This 2016 will go down alongside the previous vintages as one of the all-time greats. Those who secure a 6-pack will certainly count their purchase as among NZ's greatest ever Chardonnays.

Smells

Thoroughly Burgundian, calling to mind the great Chevalier-Montrachet, with delicious notes of cashew, nougat, citrus and wild ferment, the fruit very ripe and generous with nectarine, peach and perhaps fig, a hint of high-toned florals, perhaps magnolia. You could sniff this for hours and find more every few minutes. Like most great wines, it's more a question than an answer.

Tastes

An instant of luxurious richness is quickly consumed by an insistent acid line (a hallmark of this legendary wine). The back of the palate fattens out with creamy caramel and biscuit sensations, the finish lingering long and complex, with a pleasant peach-skin grip. When one considers how this wine usually takes 4-5 years to show its best, a little smile comes across your face. Enjoy this supremely elegant wine from 2019 through 2025+, depending on how developed you like your Chardonnay.
