Tasting notes – Rich, creamy, yet mineral fresh too. Stone fruit with oak complexity
Aroma – Peaches and nectarines with subtle creamy and toasty spice notes
Cloudy Bay remains the region’s reference for quality and is just as famous today for its Chardonnay and magnificent sparkling wine. This world class 2018 Chardonnay rivals the great whites of the Côte d’Or. Grapes were selected from the best sites around Marlborough and the juice fermented in oak barrels, not stainless steel vats. Why? To get a seamless and more subtle oak quality in the wine. Top producers in Burgundy have done it this way for years. It’s fresh, rich and full of peach and nectarine flavours with biscuity complexity. Gorgeous on its own and with roast chicken.
