The ultra-premium wines express the purity and intensity of fruit flavors naturally afforded by the top vineyard sites and maritime climate.

"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.
