Complex as all heck and well worthy of the big name, Cloudy Bay aren't satisfied with being icons and still focus on quality and class. This Chardonnay is deeply concentrated, a vibrant yet elegant yet savoury/mineral offering from the increasingly important Chardonnay region of Marlborough. Taste and decide what the fuss is about.

Overview

Chardonnay

Its Origins

Established in 1985 by Cape Mentelle, Cloudy Bay Vineyards is situated in the Wairau Valley in Marlborough at the northern end of New Zealand’s South Island. This unique and cool wine region enjoys a maritime climate with the longest hours of sunshine of any place in New Zealand. Cloudy Bay has estate vineyards located at prime sites within the Wairau Valley, and long-term supply agreements with five Wairau Valley growers. The main varieties grown are sauvignon blanc, chardonnay, and pinot noir with lesser quantities of gewurztraminer, Riesling, and pinot gris.

What The Critics Say

94/100 Bob Campbell MW

"Rich, creamy chardonnay with grapefruit, peach, struck flint, hazelnut, bran biscuit and a smattering of fresh herb flavours. Quite oaky with strong char influence. A very textural wine with impressive power and a lingering finish. 4/7/2018." Drink 2018 - 2023
