Cloudy Bay Chardonnay 2022 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 2022 taste description

Attractive on the nose, with ripe notes of Meyer lemon and white nectarine. Subtle oak is present, with aromas like the first spoon-crack of the top of a good crème brûlée: vanilla, a hint of darkness and plenty of promise.

The palate is taut and vibrant, with mouthwatering citrus framing a core of conference pear and white nectarine. The deft oak complements the fruit concentration, creating structure and ensuring a balanced rather than overtly fruity character. Saline-fresh on the long and beguiling 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 2022 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.
