Neudorf Rosie’s Block Nelson Chardonnay 2015 $33 ★★★★
Five different clones were hand harvested, fermented with wild yeasts and blended to create this buttered-crumpet-smelling chardonnay, which quickly unveils a backbone of grilled nectarine and grapefruit pith alongside deliciously textural, creamy almond characters in the mid palate. It’s a juicy, cheek-puckering style that pretty much makes everything you consume with it positively bounce around in your mouth. Fresh, elegantly structured, all-round niceness from these Nelson pioneers.
Sip with: lemon chicken tagine
