Neudorf Rosie's Block Chardonnay 2018

Neudorf Vineyards "Rosie's Block" Chardonnay is named after Tim and Judy’s daughter Rosie. Her block sits on the hill overlooking the home block. The winemaking used here is very similar to that of the Moutere Chardonnay - 100% malolactic fermentation and only about 15 % new oak. Neudorf Rosie’s Block is becoming a bit of a star in the Neudorf portfolio. It has the “Moutereness” expected of their soils and the “Neudorfness” expected of the production team. This vintage shows Rosie’s Block as a textural, flowing wine which glides across the palate. It brings a sense of completeness as every note is embraced to be part of a rich whole. There is the expected tension in the wine but some generous stone-fruit (not so generous as to be tiresome; just enough to soothe and intrigue). Mineral notes are exhibited and there is a welcome refreshing note at the finish. Oak is simply an echo in the background, not overstepping the mark at all. It’s complex but understandable – a wine you can pour, enjoy and smack your lips together and think of pouring another glass to enjoy with a roast chicken smothered in lemon and olive oil, maybe grilled flounder or chuck some sweet diamond clams into your linguine. Masterful.
