“Tense, taut and a little flinty-minerally thing going on in texture (and aroma) too. Delicious! Such a joyous chardonnay here in a prettier, lighter frame. Frisky stuff.” Mike Bennie, The Wine Front AUS
Named after Tim and Judy’s daughter Rosie, the block sits on a slightly higher elevation to the Home Block but only about 1km away. For a long time these vines have been punching well above their weight, so we’re thrilled to release a single vineyard, organically certified Neudorf Rosie’s Block Moutere Chardonnay.
A wine that naturally exudes what we call “Moutereness” - a complex combination of restrained and elegant savoury notes bound together by something that reminds us of a lazy, hazy summer evening.
This chardonnay is all about texture - it glides across your palate with an impressive core, beautiful shape and poise.
On the nose and seamlessly woven on to the palate there are notes of familiarity but the wine is so harmonious and intertwined. Oyster shell minerality, cucumber & green tea. Although the oak offers a framework here, there is a humble subtlety to it. The wine finishes with a crystalline & pristine length.
A bright, energetic, sophisticated Chardonnay,destined for greatness.
