2015 Neudorf, Moutere Chardonnay, Moutere, Nelson
£35, 14%, From the winery
Tasted at: August Sample Tasting
Consistently one of New Zealand's best Chardonnays, this is a rich, leesy, barrel-fermented style that treads the line (successfully, I might add) between opulence and pithy freshness. Citrus, oatmeal and honeyed notes are complemented by subtle vanilla sweetness and lovely, understated concentration.
