Tasting Notes

The Cloudy Bay Chardonnay showcases a mid yellow core with a silvery bright rim. The nose offers appealing aromas of cereals, wheat flower, mandarin and ripe lemon. A hint of smoke is also evident balanced with creamy cashew nuts and an underlying grapefruit zest. The palate has a fresh lively entry matched by a silky mouth filling texture. Layers of flavours include slate, green plums, tart lemons and nougat. A lively wine offering richness and depth. 
 

Vineyard Notes

We carefully selected the grapes for our Chardonnay from vineyard blocks located in the Brancott, Fairhall, Ben Morven and Central Wairau Valley sub-regions. These vineyards grow a mix of our preferred low yielding Mendoza and B95 clones and the vines excel in their alluvial soils. Each site produces a unique fl avour profile and allows for assemblage of a complex and balanced wine.
 

Winemaker Notes

After hand picking and gentle pressing, the wine was 100% barrel fermented in French oak. The wine remained in barrel, 15% of it new, for one year prior to bottling and enjoyed regular lees stirring and about 70% malolactic fermentation. The final blend was determined in March 2011 and bottled the following January. Final analysis of the wine showed it to have a pH of 3.28, TA of 6.55 g/L, RS of 2.2g/L and an alcohol of 13.8%.
