Neudorf Sauvignon Blanc 2017

The Neudorf Vineyards Sauvignon Blanc is a unique take on New Zealand’s most planted grape variety. If your palate has tired of the of the traditional “acid Queen, nettle and gooseberry blockbusters” then this expression may titillate your interest once again!

The grapes for this wine are grown on the alluvial gravels down on the plains, from the Marama Vineyard, owned by Brett and Anna Woodwiss, rather than the clay gravels of the Moutere Hills.

Winemaker Todd Stevens pursues complex aromatics while remaining true to varietal characteristics. As with the rest of the Neudorf portfolio textural interest is a major component. In the winery they use a significant (65%) percentage of wild ferment, and this along with 20% barrel fermentation moderates the high tone nature of the variety.

On the nose green papaya with some fresh ripe green, vibrant florals and a touch of fennel. The feel across the palate is weighty, juicy and opulent. The acid is elegant and gives the wine a cleansing spine. This wine is exhilarating with seafood.
