Tim and Judy Finn planted their first vines in 1978, alongside the tiny hamlet of Neudorf, established by German settlers in 1842. While the Finns initially earned an international reputation for their concentrated, mineral Chardonnay and taut, racy Riesling, it is their elegant and complex Pinot Noir which has attracted recent attention.
Neudorf Moutere Vineyards are organic and dry farmed (not irrigated). Neudorf Moutere Chardonnay, Neudorf Moutere Pinot Noir, Neudorf Moutere Riesling, Neudorf Moutere Albariño are all Bio-Gro Certified with Rosie’s Block Chardonnay as the most recently certified addition to the list. Neudorf consider their wines fit into the natural wine category if a smidgeon of sulphur is included in the ever wavering definition (and yes, the wines are vegan).
“Taste any of Neudorf Vineyard’s wines and it is obvious why many consider Tim Finn to be among New Zealand’s very best winemakers. Finn offers complexity and interest where others settle for less”
