Tiritiri Chardonnay comes from three sites within the Moutere Hills, including the young vines at Neudorf’s own Rosie’s Block.
Chardonnay offers the winemaker many choices . This is evident in our own portfolio of the classic, although contemporary, Moutere wines next to our exploration of amphora ageing. One thing is for sure - Chardonnay is a wonderful drink and Tiritiri embodies this.
Classically Neudorf, in restraint and modernity, Tiritiri is a Chardonnay lover’s package. A balanced collaboration of fruit, oak, acidity and finesse.
The wine from nose to palate is generous without ever being overblown. There’s a warm familiarity of juicy, summer fruits intertwined with sea-air minerality. Todd’s use of oak frames the wine guiding it gently, without demanding attention. All elements are laced together with a fine strand of acidity on the back palate, leaving a long, refreshing and moreish finish.
Chardonnay in this form is destined for seafood. We say it a lot , but the truth is, wines like these speak of where they come from and with the abundance of Tasman Bay on our doorstep it is hard to imagine a gently chilled glass of Tiritiri Chardonnay without the “catch of the day” no matter where you are in the world.
However I can vouch for having it alone or with a chunk of parmesan.
