This is a delightful wines with soft, powdery mineral notes, juicy acidity and oh so drinkable! It's no surprise that this wine has been so highly awarded and at a full retail price of $18 is exceptional value for money.

The deep flavours are rich and spicy with notes of black currant, crushed fresh raspberries and black pepper while the juicy acidity adds fresh vibrancy to the refined tannins in the finish. This is a wonderful wine

This is a very smart, though provoking wine, that the back label on the bottle says "Sleek - Viscous - Cohesive" and that's a very good description of this fine wine. Another cracker from the viticulture and winemaking team at Neudorf.

The 2019 Neudorf Home Block Moutere Chardonnay is one of the very best they have produced, with flavours that are elegant and acidity that is precise, while capturing the powdery minerality of the Moutere clay soils,

This is a wonderfully well crafted Central Otago Pinot Noir, the winemaker has let the fruit shine while adding complexity with delicately judged use of oak. A delicious wine that delivers on all fronts - flavour, texture and simple drinkability.

Add a twist of sweet liquorice, delicious acidity and silky tannins and you have one very serious Pinot Noir.

I love this style of chardonnay, rich and packed with flavour but with delightfully fresh acidity and not a hint of overt sulfides in sight, they are just there for complexity.
