2020 Neudorf Moutere ‘Home Block’ Chardonnay
The 2020 Neudorf Moutere Chardonnay from a vineyard which is dry-farmed organically on north facing Moutere gravels, and their ethos of minimal intervention extends into the winery. Winemaker Todd Stevens continues the focus on wines with textural interest and finesse.
Naturally this chardonnay has classic notes – white lilies, garden herbs and the now more familiar note of home baking. However, it’s the harmony and unity that define its greatness. While still young, Home Block Moutere Chardonnay 2020 already has an elegant mouthfeel which will continue to develop. This curvature is kept structured with a gentle backbone of acidity.
Restrained oak, suave fruit and classic Moutere minerality wrapped up to deliver a wine of excellence and nobility.
“Although hand-picked under strict Covid 19 social distancing restrictions, it’s the exceptional growing season & quality of fruit that shine in this bottle. A wine that for nearly four decades has led our Neudorf portfolio, the 2020 vintage is typically intense and elegant.” – Todd Stevens, Winemaker
“A taut, nervy wine, with a delicious backbone of fruity acidity helping to drive a lengthy, mouth-watering finish.” – Bob Campbell
