2013 Neudorf Moutere Chardonnay
Nelson, New Zealand
One sip of this lovely Chardonnay brings to mind and palate alike fresh biscuits and toast, hazelnuts and cashews, lemon and white peach, and yummy and yummier.
$44.99 as part of a mixed case.
"An enthralling nose of white magnolias, oat biscuits, raw cashew nuts and a final flick of matchstick flintiness. This complex compote draws you into a palate with textural interest and a reminder of the wine’s pedigree.Discreet but definite structure flows through evenly to a superbly attenuated finish, with a final flourish of Meyer lemon squeeze. A wine to cellar with confidence. The continued reputation of this wine is in no small part based on the wine’s ability to stay precise and lively for many years after release."
"The fruit was hand-picked, whole bunch pressed and fermented in 26% new French oak. 100% malolactic ferment on gross lees was followed by four months on fine lees."
"92 pts ... The 2013 Moutere Chardonnay has a gorgeous nose redolent of apricot, lemon curd and green mango plus nuances of honeyed toast, cashews and struck match. Medium-bodied, it is still very tight and youthful with great intensity, a lively acid backbone, and a long and layered finish." --01/15
