Tiritiri 1. to plant, cultivate | 2. Neudorf’s grower series.
A new addition to the Neudorf portfolio.
The inaugural Tiritiri Chardonnay comes from three sites within the Moutere Hills, including the young vines of Neudorf’s own Rosie’s Block.
Drinking this wine suggests to me what it might be like to surf those waves off Raglan. On the nose - ocean sea spray, waxy native florals entwined with white peaches. These flavours are brought though to the palate along with notes of fennel & yuzu pith. The wine flirts with an exquisite balance of minerality & precision. There is a refreshing surge of acidity that is held together brilliantly with a framework of oak & fruit concentration - all riding the wave in sync.
A Chardonnay to be gently chilled, generously shared & enjoyed with anything that takes you back to the seaside in summer, maybe for a surf, a cast, or a wander.
