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.
We had this in 2008, so it had six years on it. Rich body and a decent amount of acidity. The aromas are overwhelmingly nutty. On the palate is that same nuttiness, lemon, and a slight baked apple. It's nutty!
