2013 Neudorf Nelson Chardonnay
Nelson, New Zealand
Toasty oak, pie dough, bright and flavorful, this Chardonnay packs a nice acidic punch and pairs really well with all kinds of cheeses, shellfish, guacamole - chips are optional - and dishes with butter sauteed mushrooms or polenta.

"Synesthesia has been flung about as people explore the relationship between music and wine. In this Neudorf Chardonnay 2013 we see the relationship between smell and colour. It smells like yellow and green. Maybe I am moving a step too far but as a group we noted white stonefruit, wild fennel and daffodil. The wine aptly brings into focus our temperate climate and the ancient weathered soils of our Moutere vineyards.Deft oak supports the cushion of flavours. It is generous, mouthfilling and moves with ease across the palate before leaving a final stamp of wet stone and a hint of quince. A very alluring package and all too easy to love."
"Grapes were hand harvested from the Moutere blocks and a small parcel from the plains. Fermented in 15% new Barriques (medium toast) with 12 months on full lees until the wine fell clear following malolactic ferment."
Michael Cooper's Guide to NZ Wine
"The 2013 vintage is arguably the finest yet. Bright, light lemon/green, it is a classy, elegant wine, poised, vibrant and youthful, with strong, grapefruit-like flavours, a subtle seasoning of oak, good acid spine and a slightly buttery, long, rich finish. It's already delicious. 5 stars"
