Cloudy Bay Chardonnay zeichnet sich durch seinen reichen, frischen Fruchtgeschmack von Melonen und Zitrusfrüchten sowie sein Aroma von Nüssen und einem Hauch Mineralien aus. Er besticht durch seine zartgelbe Farbe und seinen ausgewogenen und gut strukturierten Geschmack, welcher durch Lagerung noch verfeinert wird.

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.

The scent of white flowers and fresh citrus fruits - lemons, limes and grapefruit - all temptingly mingled with the savory complexity of toasted nuts and oatmeal. The silky palate shows lively citrus flavors and seamlessly integrated spicy French oak. Cloudy Bay Chardonnay 2006 depicts the combination of natural yeast fermentation and vibrant Marlborough fruit in a wine that will age gracefully over the next five to seven years.

An elegantly crafted Chardonnay that marries vanillin oak with crisp, citrusy flavors. It's medium-bodied, with a slightly creamy texture akin to lemon custard yet stays refreshing through the finish. Drink now through 2010. - J.C. Concentrated, with very good intensity to generous toasty oak framing poached pear, bright lemon and peach tones. Drink now. Tasted twice, with consistent notes. 4,000 cases imported. -DS The 2006 Chardonnay was the earliest vintage on record with budburst 2-3 weeks earlier than usual. The nose is lacking a little personality at first but reluctantly reveals minerals, a slight chalkiness and a touch of mandarin that intensifies with a few swirls of the glass. The palate is viscous, buttery and quite honeyed towards the spice-tinged finish. It just lacks the tautness and the tension of top quality Chardonnay. ** SOLD OUT **

Winemaker's Notes:

A textural and full-bodied wine, Cloudy Bay Chardonnay combines New Zealand fruit vibrancy with Burgundian style. Packed full of citrus and stone fruit flavours with a savoury complexity, enhanced by judicious use of new oak, this is an intriguing and complex wine.
