Neudorf Rosie's Block Chardonnay 2015 Nelson
Youthful and engaging bouquet of ripe white peach, apple and even a little pear; cashew scented oak and just enough oak spice to notice; some floral moments with white flowers imaged; overall youthful with complexity and plenty of charm. On the palate - firm and youthful with a tense citrus and stone fruit engagement followed by oak and acidity then a calming creamy textured period. A delightful example with some sulphide notes and plenty of tension leading to the suggestion that this wine is best cellared for 2-3 years before it reaches its true balance and message. Decant for service - not too cold or cellar till early 2018.
