One of the best Pinot Gris in the country, this is rich in texture with loads of crisp fruit flavours but...only a touch of sweetness. High-brow terms suit Neudorf's wines best, and in this language we would say this wine is 'perfectly poised' with a plump, gentle kind of dryness and beautiful mineral layering. Great for any occasion, but especially delicious with crayfish.

Overview

Pinot Gris

Its Origins

Nelson is the sunniest viticultural region in New Zealand. Relatively isolated, it has never developed into large scale production but several wineries have established an excellent reputation for quality. Prime amongst these is Neudorf, created by pioneers Tim & Judy Finn back in the late 1970s. The winery buildings have developed steadily since 1980, and so has the reputation of this excellent producer specialising predominantly in chardonnay and pinot noir. Their flagship wines are designated by the subregion of Moutere.The Neudorf estate, lying on a mix of glacial outwash clay, now represents 12ha, though buys in fruit from a further 30ha (of managed vineyards). The viticulture is sustainable "lutte raisonnée" with organic practices being introduced since 2008. The wines are all made with minimal intervention; hand harvesting, wild yeast, low S02 and soft, supporting oak.

What The Critics Say

94/100 Bob Campbell

"Aromatic pinot gris with tree fruit, pear, peach and nectarine plus an appealing nutty and brioche character from lees contact. Dry, full-flavoured wine with a peppery texture and attractive spicy finish. The wine has a good balance of subtle sweetness with gentle acidity and fine tannins. 18/2/2017." Drink 2016 - 2021
