Non interventionist wine-making
Neudorf Vineyards is considered one of New Zealand’s treasured Chardonnay and Pinot Noir Producers. Planted by Tim and Judy Finn in 1978, the vineyard is based on gravelly soils of an ancient river system. The area’s gentle climate, combined with Neudorf’s non interventionist wine-making, produce wines of clarity and distinction. Winemaker Todd Stevens follows structure and texture over flavor and in the Moutere vineyard viticulturalist Stef Brockley follows an organic regime with intense hand work. The 35 hectares under vine are hand thinned, leaf plucked and hand picked. Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Sauvignon Blanc (partially matured in neutral oak), Riesling and Pinot Gris make up Neudorf’s cellar list.
