Cloudy Bay has been the benchmark New Zealand wine, from the iconic New Zealand winemaker Kevin Judd, since its founding in 1985 as one of the first 5 wineries in Marlborough. The ultra-premium wines express the purity and intensity of fruit flavors naturally afforded by the top vineyard sites and maritime climate.
External Reviews for Cloudy Bay Chardonnay
Bright fresh fruit-focused Chardonnay with chablis-like minerality and acidity. An interesting departure from the usually broader and more complex Cloudy Bay style perhaps reflecting vintage conditions. Should age fairly well. Bob Campbell MW.
Scented of white peaches green mango and pineapple with nuances of cedar cashews meal and struck match the 2011 Chardonnay has a lively acid line that illuminates the good core of tropical fruit flavor though the oak is still standing out a bit on the palate. It finishes long and toasty. Drink it now to 2016+. - Lisa Perrotti-Brown Robert Parkers Wine Advocate.
