Wine can give a surge of joy when it is perfect right then.
Often it is the mood, the temperature or the people you are with but it makes a memorable moment. I had this on my first sip of Neudorf Pinot Noir Rose 19.
While in many ways it is a simple wine. Judicious hand picking, gentle handling, letting the natural yeasts do the work and then bottled for release. It’s dry but mouth filling.
It is pink but not too pink – more of a soft peach or a crystal cut pink diamond.
On the palate it is a little flirtatious but still classy and it is so drinkable. So exquisite and delicate and delicious. While it is definitely part of the Neudorf stable the wine refers to Southern France in many ways.
After writing many tasting notes for many wines sometimes I just stop and say – I like it, I want to drink it. But if you’re screaming out for something to have it with, I suggest you find some salmon sashimi, the above mentioned prosciutto or sustainably caught crab.
