Cloudy Bay Pelorus NV

Winemaker's Notes:

Several different clones of chardonnay and pinot noir are used in the vinification of Pelorus nv. All grapes are pressed without crushing and the juice is given a short period of settling which is followed by racking and inoculation with a pure strain of Montrachet yeast. The base wines are fermented and aged in a mixture of stainless steel tanks, large oak vats and small French oak barrels. Following a spontaneous malolactic fermentation the wines are left to age on lees for a further eight months prior to blending each November. The chardonnay predominant blend is put on tirage using prise de mousse yeast the following February and subsequently allowed to attain a minimum of two years lees aging in the bottle before disgorgement.

Tasting Notes:

The pale straw colour and aromas of ripe citrus fruits indicate the chardonnay origins of Pelorus NV . A bouquet of apple and lemon complements fresh bready notes derived from two years bottle ageing on lees. The deliciously crisp palate displays toasty, creamy complexity, enhanced by a lingering nutty finish.
