Cloudy Bay Chardonnay is one for connoisseurs and gastronomic adventurers: refined, poised and balanced. Painstakingly made using traditional techniques, it is a true ‘food wine’. Fruit from vineyards in the stony soils of Wairau Valley and the dense clay of the Southern Valleys work together to create a wine that marries ripe stone fruit and citrusy elegance.

Chardonnay 2019 taste description

The 2019 Chardonnay is fresh, fragrant and mouthwatering. The nose is redolent of orchard fruit, white peach, apricot, blossom and warm hay. The palate is concentrated, with notes of apple and pear balanced by gentle vanilla spice, hazelnut and a subtle saline note. A dart of citrus acidity delivers freshness and leads to a long and appealing finish.

Enjoy with

Our Chardonnay is a natural match for just about everything, but especially seafood and other bright or creamy flavours. Try it with Caprese salad, soft cows’ cheeses, cream sauces or anything smoked or chargrilled.

Chardonnay 2019 Winemaking

How it's made

The grapes are hand-picked and whole-bunch pressed, a traditional approach to keeping the wine fresh and crisp. The resulting juice goes into barrels for fermentation, along with wild yeasts that build complexity and texture. The wine ages for 11 months, with malolactic fermentation used selectively to provide balance.

Vineyards and terroir

Our Chardonnay is all about balance and harmony. Vineyards planted in the stony soils of Wairau Valley and the dense clay of the Southern Valleys work together to create a wine that marries ripe stone fruit and citrusy elegance. Key vineyards include Barracks, Motukawa, Estate, Mustang, and Brook Street.

Vineyards and terroir
“We try to make a wine that speaks of the place… That’s not just Marlborough, that’s Cloudy Bay.”

Daniel Sorrell, Canopy, 2020
