The inspiration is unabashedly Chablis – we are not trying to emulate the glorious wines from those iconic limestone soils but rather use
them as a compass point. Our Moutere Clay Gravels are of quite different composition but the wines characteristically exhibit deep
mineral notes with hints of wet chalk. They have breadth and depth. For a wine with minimal oak treatment the 2015 is surprisingly multidimensional on the nose with a rich palate and energetic flow.
Winemaker Todd Stevens allowed the wine to ferment spontaneously in stainless steel and only used older neutral puncheons for some
gentle aging on light lees. We are encouraged by the consistency of the Neudorf style through our portfolio and this wine has a precise sense of place – a “Moutereness” . It is serious with immaculate and bright crackling acidity, balanced by complex melange of flinty, chalky, savoury, subtle peachiness.
While quite drinkable as a youngster it would be kind to let the bottle sit somewhere for a couple of years.
