Neudorf Tiritiri Nelson Rosé 2023 $25 Crafted by winemaker Todd Stevens, this wild-fermented rosé is unfined and has a teensy lick of strawberries and cream on the palate from a splash of malolactic fermentation.

November 18, 2018By Yvonne

Neudorf Moutere Riesling Dry 2017 ($29) Crafted from a concoction of three different clones harvested in cooler conditions than usual in the Moutere.  It has fullness and funk from its 100% wild ferment, alongside soft lime and bruised apple aromatics, a hint of biscuity, nutty niceness and long, elegant acidity on the finish.  It’s fantastic.
