NEUDORF VINEYARDS Rosie's Block Chardonnay, Nelson 2015

Until the 2015 vintage this wine was simply Neudorf Nelson Chardonnay. It remains an understudy to the flagship Moutere Chardonnay but has risen considerably in stature, itself including more Moutere fruit from maturing vines. The wine has been renamed ‘Rosie’s Block’ after proprietor-winemakers’ Tim and Judy Finn’s daughter. The Neudorf estate, lying on a mix of glacial outwash clay, is 12ha and fruit is bought in from a further 30ha of managed vineyards. Viticulture is sustainable with organic practices being introduced since 2008. The wines are made with minimal intervention: hand harvesting, wild yeast, low sulphur and soft, supporting oak.

Region Nelson

Nelson is a two-hour drive north-west from Marlborough, located at the northern end of the South Island of New Zealand. The majority of the wineries in the area are located on the alluvial, stony loam soils of the Waimea Plains to the southwest of the town, or in the rolling hills of Upper Moutere, where the gravel and clay soils are renowned for producing wines that are dense and textural. Nelson is a cool climate area. Most of the vineyard area faces north onto Tasman Bay and receives significantly more rainfall than Marlborough, however the long daylight hours during the growing season aid in ripening and flavor concentration. Nelson is best known for top quality Chardonnay, although premium Sauvignon Blanc, Riesling and Pinot Noir are also produced in the region.
