New Zealand – Neudorf Vineyards
Great wines have a basis of fruit concentration, length and sense of place – characters which can be formed only in the vineyard. The team here at Neudorf believe their primary task is to grow grapes which express the site, to take the essence of that fruit and then preserve it as wine. On the way they may fine tune the balance and complexity in a number of ways but the aim is always to allow the site to speak.
In working this close to nature there will sometimes be heartache and occasionally celebration; each year there is new promise, but always there is the excitement of discovery.
