The Wine: This wine is named after Tim and Judy’s daughter Rosie. Her block sits on the hill overlooking the home block. Winemaking is very similar to Moutere, their flagship Chardonnay – 100% malolactic fermentation and only about 15 % new oak. It is a very intense and impressive Chardonnay. Lashings of fruit, savory spice and oak launch from the glass. The palate is well weighted, but tightly focused.

Producer Profile

Neudorf

Established in 1978 by Tim and Judy Finn, Neudorf use sustainable practices and the winery is accredited under the Sustainable Winery NZ scheme, which Tim was instrumental in establishing back in the early 80’s. Winemaker Todd Stevens aim is always to allow the site to speak. Great wines have a basis of fruit concentration, length and sense of place – characters which can be formed only in the vineyard.

The pristine and spectacularly beautiful Nelson region in the South Island of NZ, and in particular the Clay Gravel Moutere Hills area, receives lots of sun (more than 2300 hours a year) making it one of New Zealand’s sunniest regions. A real bonus for such a cool climate region. Clear skies allow for rapid cooling at night, nurturing the slow development of flavours and a gradual reduction in fruit acids. This combination of climate and soil type produces white wines of concentration and texture.
