Neudorf Vineyards Moutere Riesling 2009


SKU 02470


A deeply complex wine with grapefruit, local oranges, tangelos and a lick of orange blossom and ripe guavas. Do not let yourself pre- judge the wine because of the retained sweetness. The natural grape sugars are kept in line by the lively mineral acidity. This subtle and persistent mineral note is a reflection of the terroir of our Moutere hillside vineyards. The roots of our vines search their way down between two and four metres, past the meagre top soil and into the ancient clay bound gravels beneath. Love this wine, love the low alcohol and love it with Thai chili chicken; try it with a slice of aged cheddar or enjoy a glass while considering dinner.

Wine AdvocateThe 2009 Moutere Riesling is s medium-sweet, lower alcohol style possessing 47 grams per liter of residual sugar and 9% alcohol. It gives a restrained, moderate intensity of earthy, chalky, musky notes over lemon peel and lime leaf aromas. Effortlessly, invigoratingly sweet, there's a great line of acid running through the middle contributing superb balance and lingering through the long, steely finish. It should drink best from 2012 to 2017+.
