Tiritiri 1. to plant, cultivate | 2. Neudorf’s grower series.
Our Sauvignon is grown on the alluvial gravels down on the Waimea Plains, from Marama Vineyard, owned by Brett and Anna Woodwiss rather than the clay gravels of the Moutere Hills, home to our Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Riesling, Pinot Gris and Albariño.
Neudorf Sauvignon Blanc is a unique take on New Zealand’s most planted variety.
Winemaker Todd Stevens pursues complex aromatics while remaining true to varietal characteristics. As with the rest of the Neudorf portfolio textural interest is a major component. In the winery we use 100% wild ferment, and this along with 20% barrel fermentation moderates the high tone nature of the variety.
One the nose a bouquet of bright blossom is underpinned by fresh summer fruits. The feel across the palate is poised, succulent, bracing and sophisticated. This Sauvignon exudes restraint. It is refreshing and textural, alluring and moreish.
