Taste & Other Notes
This may be the unoaked little brother to the stunning Neudorf Home Block Moutere Chardonnay 2019 but it is by no means a lesser wine, just different.
With 25% of the Mendoza fruit fermented in a clay amphora and having spent 10 months on gross lees then four months on fine lees the wine has a certain palate intensity you don’t expect in an unoaked wine.
The creamy, rounded texture on the palate leads to flavours that are crisp and refined while the juicy acidity enhances the dry finish. This is a very smart, thought provoking wine, that the back label on the bottle describes as “Sleek – Viscous – Cohesive” and that’s a very good description of this fine wine. Another cracker from the viticulture and winemaking team at Neudorf.
