Dedicated to Tim and Judy Finn’s daughter Rosie. This is the first vintage under the new nomenclature. The fruit is largely from Rosie’s Vineyard overlooking the home block. The soils are similar – gravel threaded clays which need no irrigation and are under organic conversion. The wine is still reassuringly Neudorf – wonderfully ripe fruit, coated with muesli notes but underscored by a refreshing wet stone kick. The nose combines some white fruits with complex oatmeal and almond notes. After these generous notes the palate is initially silky but then we can see the nervy tension. This adds excitement to the fruit core and keeps the structure in check. As always with Neudorf Chardonnays – structure is paramount. It is all about the winemaker holding a fine line and not painting over the taste of the fruit from a very special piece of land.
