Neudorf Moutere Chardonnay 2017

Neudorf Vineyards have been producing Chardonnay since 1981 and over the past 37 vintages have allowed their soils, climate and minimal interventionist winemaking enable the pedigree to exhibit itself year after year.  The Neudorf Moutere style is assured – never too overt, everything in balance with moreish salty tang, reminiscent of sun-dried oyster shells. It’s always surprisingly long with a final fan of flavour at the end of the palate. It offers a transparent, crystalline appeal. The oak over the years has slowly been dialled back. Todd uses only 10% new barrels and the oak is beautifully absorbed into the wine.

Over the years the wine has earned a reputation for consistency and class. It is still the only wine which has been granted 100 points from Bob Campbell MW.
