"Cloudy Bay Chardonnay 2005 is an irresistible mix of ripe citrus and toasted nut aromas reminiscent of grapefruit
A tight, focused, ageworthy Chardonnay from a very well-regarded producer. Citrus fruits play against mixed nutty aromas, over a creamy texture laced with chalky mineralilty. Simply stunning.
Wine Tasting NotesAromas of poached pear and grapefruit are beautifully complemented by a svaoury complexity reminiscent of roasted cashews and oatmeal. The combination of "hands-off" winemaking and vibrant Marlborough fruit delivers a rich, textural palate with concentrated cirus and fig flavours, seamlessly integrated oak, and a persistent finish.
