Cloudy Bay Chardonnay

CLOU195
Maybe not as highly prized as its Cloudy Bay Sauvignon brother, there is no denying the quality of this Chardonnay. A cool climate location and lots of sunshine means long, slow ripening - a recipe for success with Chardonnay.

Cloudy Bay

Established in 1985, Cloudy Bay was one of the first five wine makers to venture into Marlborough. At the time, it was almost an unimaginable place to set-up a vineyard. But Cloudy Bay’s founder - David Hohnen - was convinced of its potential to produce great wine and invested in the best land of the region. Since then, Marlborough has risen to become New Zealand’s leading wine region, as well as one of the finest winemaking locations in the world.

Tasting Notes

The nose is bright with aromas of stone fruit, white chocolate and a touch of smoke. Lemon balm and green plums combine with flint and char on a fleshy palate and lingering finish.

Food Matches

An ideal partner to crab filled ravioli and pumpkin gnocchi or grilled white fish with a classic beurre blanc.
