Description

Neudorf Sauvignon Blanc

Neudorf Sauvignon Blanc has on the nose green papaya with some fresh ripe green, vibrant florals and a touch of fennel. The feel across the palate is weighty, juicy and opulent. The acid is elegant and gives the wine a cleansing spine. This wine is exhilarating with seafood.

Neudorf Sauvignon Blanc is a unique take on New Zealand’s most planted variety.

Winemaker Todd Stevens pursues complex aromatics while remaining true to varietal characteristics. In the winery they use a significant (65%) percentage of wild ferment, and this along with 20% barrel fermentation moderates the high tone nature of the variety.

The Sauvignon grapes are grown on the alluvial gravels down on the plains, from Marama Vineyard, owned by Brett and Anna Woodwiss.

At Neudorf, we see sustainable practices as those which conserve and build up our natural resources rather than running them down. Back in the 80s Tim was instrumental in helping establish the Sustainable Winegrowing NZ scheme. The scheme covers our whole operation, from the choice of “soft sprays” to increased biodiversity in the vineyard, through best practice in the winery, to the composting of grape skins and sprinkling of waste water back to the land. We see organic certification as an extension of this scheme. This is a commitment to reducing inputs, growing healthy, robust vines and leaving the land in a better state than we found it.

We began by trialing “soft” sprays options, meaning a reduction in synthetic chemicals and more focus on natural fungicides. We also started investigating under-vine techniques to increase beneficial plant and soil micro-flora, reduce the need for herbicide and balance vine vigour. These trials moved up a gear in 2008 with the arrival of Richard Flatman, a viticulturist with a wealth of experience in organic viticulture. This led to an even stronger focus on the inter-relationships between vines and the environment in which they live.

In 2010, following a trial period on two vineyard sites exploring the organic management practices best suited to our soils and climate, we completed the switch to organic management of our producing Home Block and Rosie’s Block Vineyards.

After another few years of refining our production systems we put the Home Block into BioGro Organic Conversion, Rosie’s Block followed suit shortly after that. From March 2016 we have Fully BioGro Certification for Neudorf Moutere Chardonnay, Neudorf Moutere Pinot Noir, Neudorf Twenty Five Rows Chardonnay and Neudorf Riesling. All Moutere blocks are now either fully certified or in conversion.

Full BioGro Certification is a three year process involving a stringent vineyard management plan and yearly audits. No synthetic fungicides or herbicides are allowed, instead organic production focuses on pro-active vineyard management that encourages balance and harmony in the vineyard. Soils tests are required to prove any chemical residues in our soils are minimal. There is a huge focus on building healthy soils and encouraging strong vines that thrive in their environment.

The appearance of Dandelion Vineyards Enchanted Garden of the Eden Valley Riesling foretells the pristine and unalloyed quality of its fruit. Classic aromatics of citrus zest, lemon foliage and hints of dragon fruit flowers are etched by a clear steely minerality. This is an attractively textural wine displaying the variety's intense purity. Bone dry, its structure and length is underpinned by austere acidity.

Domaine des Ballandors Quincy 2019

This is the village adjacent to Sancerre and Pouilly Fume where wines of similar style are made but because of Quincy’s ‘lesser’ name at much reduced cost. This wine is a testament to that; the flavours and aromas achieved in this wine are equivalent to any top flight Sancerre, with ‘grippy’ edgy grapefruit notes and steely crisp fruit. When Anton Beukes, winemaker at the Môreson Winery in South Africa, tasted this wine at supper, he said; ‘This is the wine I would love to make’ - Anton makes some very serious wines, so what an accolade! Winner of Best French White Wine at ‘France under one roof’ London 2005.
